The Alum Creek VFD is actively seeking local residents (men & women) who are interested in becoming firefighters, emergency medical technicians, specialized rescue and administrative members. Our department relies on community support and involvement in serving as volunteers. Joining a volunteer fire department is a wonderful way to help others when they need help the most. It is a great feeling to know when you made a difference and saved someone's life. When you become a volunteer with us, you become part of a family. This family atmosphere creates the opportunity to develop life long friendships with other volunteers living in the community, volunteers from other departments and the people we provide emergency assistance to. Our volunteers spend a great deal of time together on emergency calls, but also attend activities throughout the year such as cookouts, fire schools and our annual awards banquet. We take time to enjoy life and joke around when we can, but when the bell rings we go to work.
