People volunteer for different reasons. Action-oriented people enjoy the excitement and adrenaline rush that emergency services offer. Some see the volunteer fire service as an alternative to ‘driving a desk by day’ – by allowing them to ‘drive a fire truck at night!’
Many like the feeling they get when they help people in their time of need, while some feel an obligation to serve their community. Others, want to belong to the team. Whatever motivates you to volunteer – everyone gains the self-satisfaction of being at their best when others are dealing with what is often the worst that life has to offer.
We realize that firefighting is not for everyone, but we believe that volunteering can be. There is plenty of work to be done on or behind the scene – including supporting the frontlines.
