Volunteer Opportunities

Membership


If you are looking for a challenge and want to serve your community, we may have an opportunity for you. In order to be a volunteer you must:
  • Be at least 18-years-old and graduated from high school.
  • Be in good health and able to pass a physical examination.
  • Live within five minutes of the fire station, when driving the posted speed limit.
  • Possess a valid Iowa driver’s license and maintain a good driving record.

If you meet the above qualifications we would encourage you to complete an online application and EEOS Form or pick one up from City Hall, located at 5160 Maple Drive. Applications are reviewed routinely and driving records are checked. Applicants meeting the above criteria will be interviewed by the membership committee and advised of the inner-workings of the department and expectations of our volunteers.

Application Process


Following acceptance, new members must successfully complete a probationary training phase and prove proficiency on a variety of tasks and equipment within one year. Members are expected to attend 75% of the Monday training sessions and respond to a minimum of 20% of the calls for service.

We provide our members with personal protective equipment, local training, and funding for approved statewide training and certification courses.
