We have open volunteer positions.
Not sure it is for you? Below are frequent comments we hear from candidates.
“Just not enough time” - We all had the concern of limited time available to serve our community, before joining the department. But we learned the department is flexible and the time requirements were manageable. Most of us hold a full-time job, have a family, and kids. We want our members to prioritize their family, but this is doable with the busiest schedule and the gratification is worth it.
“ I am not sure I am fit enough” - While we want our members to be fit enough to function on the fire ground, it not for everyone. Those not physically able to function as an interior fire fighter may be able to fill one of our other roles.
”I don’t have a clue how to be a fire fighter”-Very few of us knew how to be a fire fighter when we joined. We provide the training and mentorship needed for new members. Our new members feel very confident in their progression only after a few months of training.
“ I can’t take the risk, I have a family to support” - Safety is our first priority. While we would never say there is no risk in the fire service, we can say we work continuously to reduce risk. Our motto is “Risk little to save a little”. Our officers and fire fighters focuses on safety at every incident. On the other hand, you will learn skills during training that will help you to keep your family safe at home.
