Why become a volunteer? There are many reasons to consider joining the HSFD. For starters, it's a great way of contributing to your local community. You can learn new skills, from firefighting and first aid to communications and technical rescue. Plus, you'll make new friends that you're likely to have for the rest of your life.
Who can become a volunteer? Just like the communities they come from, the HSFD is made up of people from all walks of life. There are men and women from all types of cultural backgrounds, age groups and professions. As long as you're over the age of 18, you can apply to join as a volunteer. For people under the age of 18, we offer a junior program, giving you a great introduction to life as a member of the HSFD.
I'm not sure I have the time... The time commitment is significant. Members meet a minimum of two hours, every Monday evening, typically between 19:00 hours and 21:00 hours, 50 weeks per year. Additional weekend and/or weekday training is offered on a regular basis. However, as with most great things, you only get out what you put in. While the commitment is signifcant, the reward is well worth it and you will make a difference in many people's lives.
