VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED!!
New members are always needed. We need folks that work every shift (emergencies don’t only happen at night!) to cover all times of the day. And you don’t need to be a firefighter to be a benefit to the company and to your community. We appreciate anything and everything that you can give, no matter how big or how small. From actively engaging in the emergency activities, to driving the apparatus, to making meals for the members while they work, to just helping with the paperwork, everyone is appreciated.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone who lives or works in the Campville District and is 16 years old or older can join (16 & 17 year-olds require parental permission). Retirees might enjoy the opportunity to stay active and challenge themselves both physically and mentally. Volunteering with the emergency squad is a great way for students to acquire some basic skills, learn a little terminology, and further evaluate a medical career. If you are new to the area, becoming a member is a great way to become involved in the community and meet new people.
WHAT TRAINING DO I NEED?
No prior firefighting experience or medical training is necessary. All members train together weekly on Tuesday nights. Our training sessions allow members to review recent calls, learn new procedures, and practice using tools and operating apparatus. Also, members are encouraged to attend formal training classes offered by Tioga County at no charge. Classes range from emergency medicine to interior firefighting to hazardous materials operations, just to name a few.
