Fill out our interest form above, it only takes a minute and there is no commitment. One of our current volunteers will reach out and answer any questions you have about the life of a volunteer firefighter. We want you to be confident filling out the formal application.
Are you a business owner, nine-to-fiver, military member, high school graduate, college graduate or just an eager member of the community? Volunteer firefighting is for anyone that can pass the various applications and tests, regardless of where you came from.
Departments even offer Junior Firefighter memberships for those aged 14-18. As a volunteer, you can learn skills that will last a lifetime, regardless of future plans.
Volunteers have the opportunity to attend local, regional, state or nation wide training free of charge. Training includes seminars, conferences or hands-on training with instructors. All required equipment is also provided.
Beyond a place in the community, there are a lot of benefits to being a volunteer firefighter. Every year, members along with their guests are invited to and always enjoy the annual rewards banquet held in the Fall season.
Other events held throughout the year are a night out at the Erie Seawolves game, several picnics, and being able to participate in several parades throughout the year.
