Volunteers are consistently needed to serve in the organizations that make up the public safety system. While it is understood that not everyone may be interested in performing the duties associated with emergency operations, volunteers are also needed for support and administrative roles as well.
Volunteer opportunities exist with Fire Departments and Rescue Squads.
As with any organization there are requirements that may have to be met before you can become an operational member.
When joining an emergency services (Fire and/or EMS) organization you will usually:
Attend an organization meeting and receive a vote on probationary or initial membership
Receive orientation and perform duties under supervision
Receive a vote on full membership after completion of a probationary period
Pass a background check
Receive appropriate training
Function as an observer until appropriate training is completed
Volunteer fire opportunities exist for persons interested in
firefighting, administrative and/or support roles. Training is provided.
For Fire volunteer opportunities please call Public Safety at 434-332-9540.
Volunteer Rescue/EMS opportunities exist for persons interested in
providing emergency patient care on an ambulance, administrative and/or
support roles. For those interested, training is provided! For
