We pride ourselves in providing the best and most professional service possible. Doing so takes the combined efforts of all of our volunteers.
Full members are placed on a weekend duty team and are required to attend their assigned shifts. In addition, they are required to attend at least 50% of our business meetings and training meetings and to accumulate at least 20 hours of training per year. If a full member must miss a duty shift with their team, they are required to find coverage from a fellow member for the time missed.
Associate members are members in good standing with another fire department. They are not placed on a duty team like other members, but instead they are required to be on duty for a total of at least 20 hours per month. Associate members are also required to accumulate at least 20 hours of training every year.
Junior members are members younger than 18. Junior members are certified firefighters who can participate in normal outside (non-interior) firefighter duties but who are NOT allowed to proceed into an IDLH (Immediate Danger to Life and Health) atmosphere. During school months, junior members are required to leave the station by 10 p.m. on school nights but are allowed, with parental consent, to stay overnight on non-school nights and during the summer. Junior members must also turn in all report cards to the chief and maintain at least a C average; failure to do so will result in the junior member being suspended from all station activity until they can provide documented proof that their grades have been brought back up to a C average.
Firefighters must be at least 18 years old. We offer junior memberships for 16- and 17-year-olds. For more information, please contact the membership team.
If you can’t make your assigned duty shift, you are responsible for finding another member with the same or higher qualifications to cover your shift. We have minimum staffing requirements, and your absence may put an apparatus out of service.
Complete our Membership Interest Form, and someone will contact you and answer any questions you may have.
No. The station has a bunk room for you to sleep. When a call comes in, an alarm goes off to wake you up.
All volunteers must pass a criminal history check and driving history check. Recruits are also required to complete a physical exam.
Both are offered at no cost to members. The county and the department cover the costs of training and personal protective gear. You will have to purchase a pair of navy-blue duty pants and boots.
