18 years or older (For those age 15-17, we also have a program designed for you. Contact us for more information.)
Complete an application (which also includes a full criminal background check)
Interview with our officers
The process is usually completed within 4-6 weeks.
Upon a favorable interview and background check, you will be placed on a 60-day observer status probation period. During this time you will be allowed to watch what we do on emergency scenes, assist around the station with truck checks and equipment maintenance, and help out where needed (as appropriate to your interests and skill level). This observation period gives us time to get to know you. During this time your attendance to monthly meetings and special events is strongly encouraged! After the 60-day period is up, your application is presented to the department membership for a vote. If you are accepted, you become a member and may start your training immediately. You will also serve a probation period for your first year of membership.
