Become a Volunteer
What does it mean to volunteer?
People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it provides an opportunity to give back to the community or to make a difference in the lives of others. For others, volunteering provides an opportunity to develop new skills, pursue their individual passions or build upon existing knowledge with new experiences.
Several types of volunteer opportunities exist within our organization. Many of our members become certified firefighters, emergency medical technicians, fire police or perform other emergency response functions. Members who are not interested in responding to emergencies may perform tasks associated with fundraising, public relations, finance, maintenance or other support functions.
Thank you for your interest in joining Monroe Fire Company. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the application process, please contact the membership secretary for additional information.
