VOLUNTEERINGVolunteers started the fire service in our region and they continue to be part of the services provided by South County Fire. Volunteering often requires special training. It takes commitment and a willingness to give back to the community. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
Fire Support Volunteers
Fire Support Volunteers serve in non-emergency roles assisting staff in areas such as support at fire scenes, public education, and community service. Applications are accepted when openings are posted on our employment page.
Fire Corps Volunteers
Do you like working with the public and have an interest in promoting public safety? Fire Corps volunteers help with prevention and education work. You may help kids and parents with bike helmets and car seats, or work with seniors to prevent injuries.
Orientation for new Fire Corps volunteers will take place in September. See the Fire Corps page to sign up to receive email notifications about the recruitment and application process.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers learn basic disaster preparedness skills so they can help themselves and their neighbors during a disaster. Neighborhood Ambassadors promote disaster preparedness in their immediate communities.
Training takes place in the spring and fall. See the CERT page for more information.
Volunteers from all our programs support activities such as:
- Edmonds July 4 Parade
- Fire Prevention Week Open House
- Tour de Terrace Parade
- Edmonds Waterfront Festival
- Taste of Edmonds
- National Night Out Against Crime
