Volunteers Needed

Our organization relies entirely on volunteers, and we encourage anyone with a good attitude to apply.  Applicants for firefighting positions must be of sound judgement, and prepared for a mentally and physically strenuous job;

however we also accept volunteers for non-emergency support positions. 

All applicants must be drug-free, and planning to live in the area for the foreseeable future.  


Firefighter candidate must be willing to complete training in structural and wildland firefighting, and professional CPR.  We will also consider applicants who are only interested in rescue and emergency medical service (i.e. no direct firefighting), and applicants for water tender operator.  Volunteers are expected to attend monthly training and business meetings,

twice yearly weekend trainings, and respond to emergency calls.


Volunteers receive all necessary training and equipment to become firefighters.  We also actively encourage continuing education, and will generally cover the cost for volunteers to attend commercial driving, firefighting,

and emergency medical trainings.
