We offer two kinds of memberships: an individual membership and a family membership. There is no cost difference between the memberships. Membership fees cover a 12-month period from November 1st to October 31st of every year.

An individual memebership is valid for the applicant only. They may change to a family membership at any time free of charge.

A family membership includes the member’s partner/spouse and children 20 years of age and under. All members must be living in the same residence. When a member’s child reaches the age of 21, they are required to obtain their own membership and pay their own membership fees. However, they would be “grandfathered in” and would not be required to go through the new member application process or pay the initiation fee.

For general information regarding our membership, please see our Membership page.

As a general rule of thumb, memberships not paid by the end of February each year is considered abandoned and your membership has lapsed. When your membership has lapsed, you must request a membership re-instatement. To request a re-instatement of your membership, please write a letter to the Board of Directors for review. Re-instatement applications are reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Directors and are not guaranteed to be approved.

If your re-instatement application is approved, you will be required to pay all previous years’ membership dues and any applicable late fees that were not renewed in addition to the current year’s membership dues.

If your re-instatement application is not approved, you will be required to apply as a new member through our new member application process that happens every year in November, including, but not limited to, the interview, safety course, new member orientation, and initiation fees.
