Why Volunteer

Did you know that most of the Montgomery County fire companies are made up of volunteers? Our volunteers help keep the fire company running efficiently all day, every day. We never know when a call may come, but we are always ready to respond.

There are many benefits to becoming a volunteer:

Fire companies are a family. Join a team, develop camaraderie amongst your fellow volunteers and establish friendships that last a lifetime.
