There is a different reason for everyone as to why they volunteer. Some will say that this is their way to give back to their community, while others may be looking to add some excitement to their lives. There are some that are just searching for the camaraderie that the fire service is known for.
Are there any benefits?
Yes! While NFD members are not paid there are many tangible rewards for serving.

What are the expectations for a volunteer?
As a new member you’ll be expected to make 75% of the training’s throughout the year. Training is done every Monday starting at 6 PM.
EMT’s are required to sign up for 30 hours each month. These hours are signed up on Friday nights and the weekend.
What training would you be required to complete?
As a firefighter you must complete Firefighter 1 course. As an EMT, you must complete the EMT-Basic course. Both courses are taken through the local technical college.
If you would like to volunteer, but would rather do so in a different way, the fire department also has an Athletic Club. The athletic maintains the park and other various tasks.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our department. Give us a call or stop by on any Monday night during our weekly drill. Volunteer today and download an application.
