Volunteer with us!
We are currently recruiting qualified applicants for Resident Volunteer positions. Resident volunteers live in the Fire District's residence and are responsible for carrying out the duties assigned by the Fire Chief. Selection for a Resident Volunteer position requires a two-year commitment on the part of the individual. No experience is necessary as all training and equipment is provided by the Fire District. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable training and experience while making a direct and positive impact on people's lives.
