What if no one cared, didn’t have time, or left the job for someone else to do...... Are you someone who would like to give something back to the community? Are you someone who wants to accept the challenge of helping someone out at the worst moments in their lives? Are you someone who is looking to be part of a proud dedicated team? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then maybe you are who we are looking for. Becoming a volunteer firefighter is a great way to fulfill those opportunities and so much more! You will enjoy a sense of achievement, increased self respect, community and personal recognition, the rewards that come from helping others when in need, the opportunity to learn new skills and perfect others. Yes, firefighting is very hard work. There will times were long hours are required, and work in dark, dirty, cold, and hot conditions. Being a volunteer firefighter will never make you monetarily rich. The payment comes from the pride you will have in yourself and your organization. It comes from the feelings of friendship and teamwork that you will enjoy. It’s in the heartfelt handshake of a grateful homeowner, a mother’s tear of gratitude, a child’s awe as they see inside of a real fire truck, and talk to a real firefighter. The smile of a friend or neighbor who smiles and says “job well done”, and the time spent with follow firefighters builds a sense of teamwork and accomplishment. The Mt.
