Why Volunteer?

Have you ever heard a siren or seen a fire engine – and wondered what was happening?

Have you ever witnessed or come upon a motor vehicle accident – and wished you could help?

Have you been there when someone was stricken with sudden illness – and wanted to assist?

Are you looking for new friendships, challenges, and rewards?

Do you want to become involved in your community?

The fire and rescue service is one of the most diverse and challenging vocations today. It is this diversity that attracts most men and women to join our ranks.

Different people volunteer for different reasons. Action oriented people enjoy the excitement and adrenaline rush that emergency services has to offer. Some see the volunteer fire service as an alternative to ‘driving a desk by day’ – by allowing them to ‘drive a fire truck at night!’

Many like the feeling they get when they help people in their time of need, and some feel it’s their obligation to serve the community. Yet others just want to belong to the team. Whatever motivates you to volunteer – everyone gains the self-satisfaction of being at their best when others are dealing with what is often the worst that life has to offer.

"Volunteering in emergency services is one of the most important decisions you may ever make. We hope that you give this decision the time and serious consideration it deserves and decide to join our ranks.”

Imagine having to prepare yourself to cope with situations that range from structure fires to childbirth to hazardous chemical spills to heart attacks to almost any imaginable emergency in between. This diversity is coupled with the fact that these skills may be needed at any time of the day or night, seven days a week, in any kind of weather, and very often under potentially stressful and emotional circumstances. Yet these same factors contribute to our profession being so personally rewarding.

We realize that firefighting is not for everyone, but we believe that volunteering can be.  There is plenty of work to be done on or behind the scenes – including running the business of delivering emergency services.

The personal rewards and satisfaction received from what we do is often beyond description. There is the sense of accomplishment when you control a building fire, joy and elation when a child is born, compassion for accident victims, and fulfillment from teaching fire safety.
