Filing paperwork, scheduling events, planning, preparing the Fire House for visitors or meetings, taking care of the building and flora around the building are just a few of the many tasks that are needed. Just show up at the Bergheim Fire Station any Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. and talk to the Chief or any of the officers about what you would like to do for the Fire Department.
