Local Fire Service Volunteering

Britannia Beach Volunteer Fire Department

One of the greatest challenges for rural fire departments is recruiting and maintaining a required number of active members to meet safety standards and the insurance industry’s requirements. Without that minimum number, there is a risk of losing insurance recognition, or worse, the department itself.

You need a basic level of fitness and good health, plus an interest in learning, participating and being a part of a great team. Training is provided for you and the departments offer a range of opportunities and incentives.

So, if you are working or retired, young or not-so-young, we would love to talk to you. Your support is critical to the fire department’s success and to the effectiveness of your local volunteer fire service.

Please visit the Fire Services page where you'll find contact information for the Volunteer Fire Department operating near you.
