Fire & Rescue

Gallup Firefighter Tractor Trailer


Getting and keeping volunteer firefighters is the biggest need for the McKinley Fire Department. Volunteers who are available during the daytime especially are needed. Volunteer firefighters are provided with a handheld radio or pager, receive $5 per call, and are eligible for PERA and health insurance benefits.

Service Appreciation

Volunteers are recognized by an awards banquet every two to three years. McKinley County has never had a volunteer firefighter fatality in the line of duty. Persons interested in applying for volunteer firefighter positions should contact Bill Woolman.
