Fire Corps Masthead


Fire Corps


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
  • Fundraising
  • Data Entry
  • Bookkeeping
  • Administrative functions
  • Public Relations
  • Preplanning and research
  • Apparatus and facility maintenance
  • Bilingual assistance

Getting Started:

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.
