 Join the Bartelso Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary! 

 It's FREE and  only meet 4 times  a year!  

The Bartelso Volunteer Fire Department is excited to announce their new Auxiliary.  The Auxiliary is to benefit the department, firemen and women, and also the members of our community.  The Auxiliary is intended to assist and support the fire department in the following areas:


1.  The Auxiliary is to help create camaraderie with the current and retired Bartelso fire department families and other departments within the county. 


2.  The Auxiliary will be able to prepare meals, snacks and/or refreshment during extensive fire/responder calls.  This enables the departments on scene to continue with their stamina and nourishment during extreme conditions.


3.  The Auxiliary will be able to support families during and after one is sick, hospitalized, crisis or a death in the family.  


4.  The Auxiliary will help support the department in their current fundraising efforts.  The  Auxiliary will also hold their own small fundraisers to help financially support their own events/activities.  These funds will remain separate from the department.


On June 3rd, the Auxiliary had their first meeting and walked away with its first members, bylaws, mission statement and elected officers.  The group continues to meet four times a year.


The Auxiliary Membership is free and is open to any Bartelso resident, 18 years and older.  You do not need to have any relation to the fire department to be a member.  If you would like to become a member, please complete the membership form and below send it to:
