Retired Members

These member's have met the minimum criteria for Retiring with Rattlesnake Fire. That means they have vested at least ten years with Rattlesnake Fire and the community. We would not be where we are today if it were not for these dedicated members. This page is newer and we need a lot more photos/bios. If you are a retired member please contact the site administrator with a photo (hopefully in uniform) and your information! You could also swing by for a cup of coffee and get caught up.
