Are you looking for community service hours? Are you looking for extra credit at school? Are you interested in becoming a firefighter? Within West Virginia, there are over 400 volunteer fire departments and most, if not all of these fire departments need YOUR help.
Adults of all ages are needed at the fire department.
The Junior Firefighter program allows young adults from ages 16-18 to participate in limited fire department activities while giving these folks a chance to learn and grow in an environment that helps their communities and gives them a sense of fulfillment.
And there are programs in many communities where kids under 16 years of age can learn more about the fire department through explorer programs.
By submitting the form below, the staff of the West Virginia State Firemen’s Association will attempt to forward the information you provide to the closest volunteer fire departments in your area. Representatives of these fire departments will be notified of your interest and they’ll have the opportunity to contact you about volunteering.
Remember, this is just one way to get involved. You can always stop by your local volunteer fire department and ask them “How do I become a firefighter?”
If you’re under 16 years old, please have your parents help you with the form below. All youngsters aged 17 or below must have their parent’s permission before joining the fire department.
