West Point, Wilseyville, and
Calaveras County Needs You!
Did you know that 75% of the firefighters in the United States are volunteers? That's right! And while many Calaveras County Fire Departments have some paid staff, the majority of the firefighters on your department rosters are volunteers.
The Calaveras County Fire Chiefs Association invite you to visit your local fire department and learn how you can help make a difference in your community. Volunteer firefighters are needed to help minimize the risk to citizens, property, and fellow first responders as call volumes increase. While it does take dedication and sacrifice, being a volunteer firefighter is a rewarding experience.
To inquire about volunteering, visit the Calaveras County Fire Chiefs Association website. Or, check out what's happening in the various Calaveras County fire departments on the new Calaveras County Fire Chiefs Association Facebook page.
