Are you ready for the challenge?
What are the benefits of becoming a firefighter? The personal rewards and satisfaction each firefighter receives from the service is beyond description. Imagine the pride you will experience controlling a structure fire, the accomplishment of safely extricating a family from their vehicle after a multiple car collision, or the excitement on a child’s face after a fire safety and prevention presentation. These are just a few examples of why we do what we do.
Don’t make your decision too quickly. Deciding to become a firefighter should not be made lightly. Firefighting is not for everyone. You need courage, dedication, motivation, and a willingness to face new challenges. You will be expected to perform hot, dirty and strenuous work in hazardous and stressful environments. You must devote countless hours (especially in the beginning) to training, both hands-on and in the classroom. You will be expected to assist in performing testing and maintenance to the equipment, washing the apparatuses, helping with fundraising and community events, performing administrative tasks and cleaning the station, just to mention a few.
