What It takes To Become A Volunteer Firefighter
The fire and rescue service is one of the most diverse and challenging professions. It is this diversity that inspires most men and women to enter the service – both as volunteers and career employees. Imagine having to train for situations such as building fires, hazardous chemical spills, heart attacks, vehicle accidents, and almost any imaginable emergency situation in between. This diversity must be met by the commitment of firefighters to respond to calls day or night, in rain or snow, under potentially stressful and emotional circumstances. All of these factors contribute to a personally rewarding volunteer experience.
