The role of a Volunteer with your local Fire Department has always been recognized as one where you get up in the middle of the night or leave your house on a weekend, make a mad dash to the fire house to get your gear on, and climb on a truck to go put out someone's fire or otherwise help someone in need.
The history of Fire District 4 has always been that way. It even included the idea that if you worked in the community, you closed your business or had an agreement with your employer where you could leave for emergencies.
We are still looking for those kind of people, but we are also looking for those that might just be interested in teaching emergency preparedness classes, standing by at a first aid station during Kla Ha Ya Days, getting to be CERT trained to help out the community during major emergencies, or working in our Operations center manning phones and radios.
If you are looking for a part-time job, we probably can't fill the need that you may be looking for. If you are interested in community service, helping those that may not be able to help themselves, putting some effort back in to the community that you have appreciated - this may be the role for you.
The District is still in the process of putting some of these programs together, but we would be interested in hearing from you. Please fill out our form if you are interested. Applicants must be in good health. Since this is a government agency, a background check will be done on all potential volunteers. Those living in the boundaries of Fire District 4 will be considered first.
