Nothing equals the excitement when you hear the alarm tones calling you to respond to an emergency: the exhilaration of diving into your gear and running for the fire engine or ambulance, the satisfaction of knowing that you may save a life.
Become a volunteer with the Arcola Volunteer Fire Department — be one of the dedicated men and women who donate your time when your community calls. It truly is the experience of a lifetime!
We always are looking for individuals who are committed to making a difference in the community. If you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenges of our business, we’d very much like to talk to you. Prior EMS or firefighting experience is not required.
For those with a desire to support our operations who do not wish to participate in emergency care in the field, we offer administrative membership. Administrative members provide much of the behind-the-scenes work that keep our operations going, and we are eager for you to get involved.
All applicants must be authorized to work in the United States and are subject to a full background investigation. With the exception of the EMS junior member program, applicants must be at least 18 years of age by their membership start date.
