How much time is required to server as a volunteer?

Operational volunteers should expect to spend a significant amount of time in training to obtain the certifications required to be part of an emergency response team – usually two nights per week and two Saturdays a month for a period of 5 to 6 months for either fire training or EMT training. Once certifications are obtained, most volunteers spend between 24 to 48 hours per month of duty time at the station.

Non-Operational volunteers (those members who help behind the scenes at a fixed facility) should expect to spend a few hours per week (depending on what you are doing for the agency) to help support the activities of our emergency responders.
