Whether you volunteer to fight fires or provide emergency medical services, you will be making a commitment of time to your local Fire Company and community. In any given week you will spend some time in training, attending meetings, maintaining equipment, and a variety of other duties in addition to going out on calls. While there is no limit to the amount of time you can give, an average weekly commitment can be five to eight hours.
There are plenty of other ways to volunteer as well. Administrative staff help run the corporate side of the Fire Company, Fire Police help with traffic control and scene safety, and Auxiliary members provide valuable support both in front of and behind the scenes. A typical Fire Company is comprised of volunteers of numerous and varying skills, backgrounds, and interests. There are roles, jobs, and things to do available for almost everyone!
Most Fire Companies will require recruits to be local residents. You will have the opportunity to strengthen relationships with local residents and businesses. You will also enjoy developing and building strong bonds with your fellow volunteers.
