WILL I GET PAID?
Unfortunately, no. HTFD-23 firefighters are volunteers and do not receive financial compensation. However, the free training and experience you receive can help you if you are considering a career as a first responder or medical professional.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE?
Firefighters must be at least 18 years old. However, junior firefighters can volunteer and assist firefighters once they’ve turned 16.
WILL EQUIPMENT BE PROVIDED?
Training and equipment will be provided at no cost to you.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO DEVOTE AS A VOLUNTEER?
Volunteers are only asked to give as much time as they can. There are plenty of ways you can help out as a volunteer, from becoming a volunteer firefighter, junior firefighter, or volunteer associate member. Active firefighters should expect regular training sessions, commitments for fundraising and other support activities.
