Different people join the volunteer fire service for different reasons. Some “drive a desk” by day and want the chance to drive a fire engine at night – feeling the adrenaline rush that comes with responding to a real emergency.
Others are looking to add new training and experiences to their career path while some people have a more personal connection to the volunteer fire service. Maybe volunteer firefighting is a family tradition or perhaps, your family has needed our services in a personal emergency.
Underneath it all, everyone wants to give back to their community while gaining something for themselves – the personal satisfaction that only comes with being that person who makes things better on someone else’s worst day.
