Your community fire department needs you!

Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment PosterVolunteer Firefighters assist their communities by providing support with emergency and non-emergency services.

These volunteers are fully trained and certified to manage a variety of emergencies: structure and wildland fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials spills. Volunteers also perform rescue duties during natural disasters, including such as floods, earthquakes, and mudslides. Volunteer Firefighters receive ongoing training in the latest emergency response techniques and technology.

Volunteer Firefighters operate and maintain the fire station’s firefighting equipment, and keep the station ready to react to any emergency situation in the community it serves. In addition to their assigned hours at the station, Volunteer Firefighters are on call for emergency response 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In addition, special non-emergency volunteer positions are available such as; administrative support, mechanic and fundraiser.

When a fire blazes or disaster threatens, Volunteer Firefighters answer the call. Do you have what it takes to meet the challenge?
