Regardless if you volunteer to be a firefighter, emergency medical technician, board member or quartermaster, knowing that you made a difference in people’s lives when they need it the most is one of the best feelings you can ever have.

Our volunteers serve in two distinctive roles:

Operational Volunteers provide immediate assistance at the scene of an emergency. The training requirements for becoming a fully operational volunteer could be substantial.

  • Emergency Medical Service (EMS)- Volunteers are trained and certified as emergency medical technicians (EMT’s) and ride on ambulances and paramedic units.

  • Supression –Volunteers are trained as Firefighter/EMT’s and provide both fire suppression and emergency medical Services. These volunteers can be seen riding on any fire or medical apparatus. 

Administrative members work behind the scenes to make it all happen. Roles include, but not limited include: Board member, Quartermaster (Logistics), Fund-Raising, Public Education etc.
