We’re more than 5,000 strong in the Erie County Volunteer Fire Service and we’re extremely proud of those who protect our communities. With you, we can be stronger!
We ‘re building and celebrating three special campaigns that feature our great team of volunteer firefighters:
- ReDEFINE Yourself! celebrates our county’s growing number of fire service Triple-F volunteers: Fabulous Female Firefighters.
- firstFAMILYfirst highlights the benefits of joining what we affectionately call our ‘second family’, especially when you’re already ‘firstFAMILYfirst’!
- DEFINE: Active! showcases our seemingly super-human volunteers who juggle home, work, family and a laundry list of volunteering activities in their REALLY active lifestyles!
Here’s your chance you meet just a few of the team members who have answered the burning question: “iVolunteerFIRE because: This is the best job in the world!”
