Volunteers

Our volunteers are essential to the function of the fire district. Volunteering can be very rewarding and satisfying. Some people use volunteering to try the waters of the fire service as a possible career choice. Especially young people who are trying to figure out what occupation to enter.

While firefighting may seem exciting it is also very dangerous. Many volunteers die nationwide every year. We train our volunteers to recognize hazards and how to deal with them safely. However, some hazards are just unavoidable and unpredictable. Firefighting is very stressful on the body and many volunteers are not physically accustomed to this stress. So it is important to know the risks and benefits before volunteering as a firefighter.

What is the process to become a volunteer? Well first the volunteer must complete an application and be accepted. After acceptance, the volunteer will undergo training and meet certain criteria before receiving department turnouts or being allowed to respond on incidents. During this training, safety will be stressed so all volunteers can operate safely. We do not want them to become a national statistic.
