Do you have what it takes to be a part of a growing and progressive organization?
As a volunteer you will gain valuable training in firefighting, hazardous materials, and medical response during Fire Academy* and the volunteer probationary period. Volunteers holding an EMS certification may take advantage of regular, free continuing education and free refresher courses.
Out-of-district volunteers are assigned to a specific shift (A, B, or C) and are required to work a minimum of 36 hours per month. In-district volunteers are expected to respond to a minimum of 10 percent of all calls throughout the year. All members - paid and volunteer - are subject to minimum continuing education and training requirements. Explore more of the benefits of volunteering and consider applying to our next academy!*
*Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue will not be having a firefighter recruit academy in 2023. If you are already certified and would like to volunteer - we would love to hear from you!
