BECOME A FIREFIGHTER

 

Volunteers account for almost 75% of firefighters in the United States.  You can join this noble tradition of service in your community - no experience required. 

 

Today's firefighter is not a one-dimensional character. We respond to emergencies of all types, and take part in community activities alongside the auxiliary.  We are anywhere our friends and neighbors need help.
