Why Volunteer with the Fire/Rescue Service?

A Personal Commitment to Your Community

Selflessness, safety, being a team player, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion, commitment, and competence. The competence will come from training to ensure a job is done safely and effectively. Other requirements vary by local fire department, but generally you must be 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED, and pass a required SLED background check and physical.

SO MANY WAYS TO VOLUNTEER

From Fighting Fires & EMS to Managing Events, Accounting & More

Yes, you can be a volunteer firefighter, EMT or paramedic — and eventually even the Fire Chief! But we’re also looking for volunteers to fill the many supporting roles that keep a Fire/EMS department going — including accountants, marketers, IT professionals, fundraising coordinators, office support staff and more. Every role is critical — whether you want to be on the front lines responding when someone calls 911, or behind the scenes keeping the fire trucks on the road and the bills paid. Volunteering at your local fire company is worth every minute. So if you’ve ever been curious about what it’s like to serve, now is a great time to find out more.
