The members of the Milltown Volunteer Fire Department have many functions, not just fire fighting. Although all members of the fire department must be fire fighters, some of the members have taken extra training to help out the community. Many members have attended First Responder/Emergency Responder training to help citizens with medical issues. These members respond to calls with local ambulance services and provide care prior to the ambulance arriving on scene. Other members have attended training to perform rescue operations. Such instances are vehicle extrication, water rescue, grain bin rescue, Hazardous Materials situations or general search and rescue.
