We offer the opportunity for you to volunteer in the area that you feel most comfortable with, where you feel you can contribute the most, and where you’ll benefit the most from your volunteering experience. Our membership is split into the following groupings:
Firefighter – If getting hot, dirty and physical is your game – this is for you. We offer virtually unlimited opportunities to explore the exciting world of firefighting and the training to do it safely. Whether you only assist on the outside – or run in to the fire as others are running out – there’s plenty for everyone to do on the fireground. The training is free, but the rewards are priceless.
EMS Only – If you enjoy helping people in medical emergencies – we’ll provide the training absolutely FREE. In cooperation with the State of North Carolina, we’ll train you in CPR and to be an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B).
Administrative & Associate – Administrative & Associate Members provide administrative and fund-raising support for the operation and the business of our busy Fire and EMS department. From accounting, secretarial, computer, public relations, maintenance, community education and administrative functions – there’s plenty to do behind the scenes. Anyone who does not have the desire to participate directly in emergency services, or those who cannot meet the physical demands for active membership are encouraged to serve our department in this capacity. Associate members do not participate in any emergency responses nor are they required to attend the required training under our operations divisions.
All categories of membership require completion of our full membership process.
