Part-Time Heroes Needed For Full-Time Rewards
We need your help! If it weren't for volunteers, three fourths of the United
States would be without adequate fire protection... Including the
community you live in. Few jobs offer the challenges and rewards that
volunteer fire and rescue services offer. This business is not for everyone.
You need courage, dedication and a willingness to learn new skills. As a
volunteer you will be trained to react with confidence to all sorts of
emergency situations. The rewards in the fire services are incredible if you
consider respect and appreciation reward enough. Saving a neighbor's home
from being destroyed by fore or rescuing a person from an automobile
accident are rewards of personal satisfaction. So if you have the desire to
help and you believe you have what it takes too meet the challenges, join the
team that protects the city and surrounding rural areas we call home.
