Fire Corps is a locally-driven program that enables community members to offer their time and talents to their local fire/EMS department in a non-emergency role.
Fire Corps members support fire and EMS departments by performing non-emergency tasks, enabling department members to focus on emergency response and training. There are many ways community members can contribute to their local department, including, but not limited to:
- Fire prevention and safety education
- Rehab or canteen services
- Data Entry
- Administrative functions
- Public Relations
- Preplanning and research
- Apparatus and facility maintenance
- Bilingual assistance
Check with your local Fire Department to see if they have a current Fire Corps Program.
What if there is not a Fire Corps program in my area?
If your local department does not have a Fire Corps program currently, you may ask them if you can advocate that a new program be implemented. Perhaps you could offer your services to help start a Fire Corps program within the department.
