JOIN

The Fire and Rescue service is one of the most diverse and challenging vocations today which is why it attracts so many men and women who embrace challenge and diversity to join. We have two types of volunteers at our department, Operational and Administrative.

 

Operational duties include providing fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to our community. Once completing training volunteers can serve as emergency medical technicians, firefighters, paramedics, ambulance and fire engine driver/operators, and officers.

 

If operational duties are not for you, there are administrative positions too. From fundraising to building maintenance, community outreach to recruiting, there are plenty of options to help. Experience is not required for any position.
