Yes. There is both mandatory and optional training provided year-round. BFD meets every Wednesday night from 7-9 and every other Tuesday from 7:30 -9. See our upcoming events calendar for more information.
Many of our volunteers have full-time jobs yet still find it rewarding to serve the community as a firefighter. We are flexible with the time that you commit.
We average 22 calls per month. With training and events, you can expect to dedicate between 20-40 hours a month.
There is no cost to you. All necessary training, equipment, supplies and materials are paid for by the department.
Benefits are available to those who participate. There is a small stipend available for training and responses.
Time requirements vary by need. Time commitment will depend on several factors, such as the number of calls, training, and community activities. As a new firefighter, there is a lot to learn. Expect to be busy for your first year.
