Wake Forest Fire Department seeks volunteer firefighters

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 2:21pm

The Wake Forest Fire Department (WFFD) is seeking dedicated volunteers to join its family of firefighters.

The WFFD is a combination department which means both career staff and volunteers are needed to operate. Although volunteers do not earn a salary, they are an integral part of the department’s community protection efforts and may receive a stipend per shift depending on their qualifications. As a result, serious, dedicated men and women are needed.

Responsibilities of volunteer firefighters include fighting fires, providing medical aid, assisting at emergency scenes, participating in training, and providing administrative support.

Both certified and non-certified candidates are eligible, and there are no residency requirements, but volunteers must be willing to commit a minimum of 24 hours of duty crew each month.
