Volunteers needed! is there a FIRE in you? 
 

Why Volunteer

Get Involved
By joining your local department, you’re afforded the chance to truly make a difference in your community. This is your opportunity to get involved in something rewarding and meaningful. You’ll find out what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter, to have the courage to act, the ability to perform.

Give Back
Giving back is answering the call when no one else will. It’s providing the safety and reliability the community needs. It’s the ultimate service to your community. You might think at first that you don’t have the time – until you feel the honor of helping out your neighbors in a way that no one else can, when they truly need you. You’ll realize nothing is more worth your time.

Train for Safety
Your first thought may be that you’re not trained to fight fires and handle emergencies. But when you join the volunteer fire service, you’re trained to be safe. You’ll receive continuing education on the most current technology and equipment as you go along to hone your first responder skills. You can rest assured you’re making a huge difference in your community and doing so in the safest way possible thanks to the exceptional training provided to you.

Benefits
As a member of the volunteer fire service, not only do you get the satisfaction of helping others, but you get free training, tuition assistance and other great benefits. You become part of a new family, a brotherhood and sisterhood unlike any you’ve
ever known.

Other potential benefits include but are not limited to:

  • Free training
  • Being a team member
  • Tax breaks
  • Life insurance policies
  • Retirement benefits
  • Tuition assistance

Requirements

Specific requirements vary between departments, but generally speaking, you must be:

At least 16 years of age. There is no maximum age, with less physically demanding duties, such as administration or scene support, available to older volunteers. In good physical health. This, of course, is relative to the duties you’ll be called upon to perform. Of sound moral character and prepared to fill a position of responsibility and trust.

While not strictly requirements, experience shows us that successful volunteers are usually caring people who are concerned about their community and enjoy working as part of a team. You should also be the type of person who enjoys being challenged and learning new skills.
