About Us

From The Chief

Today's Fire Service is faced with a constant changing environment. These changes are more prevalent today that ever before, with more challenges that one can hardly imagine.


To meet these changes, we must revisit our thoughts on "adaptability". In the past changes meant that we purchase newer equipment, increase staffing and increase training.


No longer can we expect constant budget increases, constant upgrading of our equipment, additional personnel, and more training.

Today our volunteers are reverting back to techniques of the early days of fire service. That is, making sure we purchase "multipurpose" equipment and supplies. The "Bells & Whistles" are now being replaced with functional capabilities and usage. More emphasis is being placed on "Quality" of staffing instead of just increasing our numbers. Training for real world response with tactics and strategy geared to "everyone goes home". Today safety is just not talked about, but is an absolute.


We have been fortunate in being able to adapt, compete, and meet the challenges of this ever changing environment We are accomplishing this by the dedication of our members, the support of our District Board of Directors, and keeping a constant, awareness toward tomorrow's challenges.


We welcome you to our Web Site.


Kerry Tanner, Fire Chief

Johnsonville Fire Service

The Johnsonville Fire District consist of Firefighters, Logistical/Support, and Reserve personnel. Each member has multiple duties to perform within the District. All members are cross trained in several areas of fire service functions. On any given response our members may be called upon to serve as drivers, pump operators, support personnel, and/or firefighter.


Volunteers have to maintain a life style like no one else. While taking care of normal family responsibilities, personal time, work schedules, and other duties, at a moments notice they are prepared and ready to respond to emergency calls.

Sentenced to death by fire, Florian is reputed to have challenged the Roman soldiers I will climb to heaven on the flames. The fearful Romans chose instead that he be flogged and flayed then thrown into the river Enns with a stone tied around his neck.
