Becoming A Volunteer....


What It Takes to Volunteer?

Being a volunteer firefighter or auxiliary member is not about what you look like, what degree you have, or where you come from. It is about one thing: heart. Do you have what it takes to serve your community?

Becoming A Volunteer?

If you're ready to serve your community in ways that few can, you have just about everything you need to get started. Your local fire department, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company, may have some other requirements, such as a background check. But when it comes down to it, volunteering as a first responder is all about having the heart and drive to make a difference where it's needed most.

Experience Volunteer Firefighting

Being a volunteer firefighter is about a lot more than just putting out fires. It’s an opportunity to learn cutting edge skills that prepare you to help members of your community when they need it most.

Learn What You Need On The Job

When you sign up to be a volunteer firefighter or emergency responder, you'll receive all the training you need. Depending on your department's needs and your desire, you'll learn skills to help your community during fires, medical emergencies, and road and air accidents, to highlight few. Check out your local fire department to learn more.
