Volunteer firefighters serve their community. They gain personal satisfaction in knowing they make a difference in the lives of the people who live and work in their community. Volunteer firefighters typically have other full- or part-time jobs elsewhere, while still devoting their services to the community. Training is required and provided by the fire district. Volunteers receive extensive training for all types of emergency response situations. Firefighting, medical emergency response, motor vehicle crashes, water rescue, and disaster response, are among some of the training classes provided at no charge to volunteer firefighters. They are required to attend training sessions on an ongoing basis. Becoming a volunteer is an excellent way to receive training in preparation for a full-time firefighter position.Type your paragraph here.
