There are numerous opportunities to make a meaningful impact in your community when you join the efforts of Long Meadow Volunteer Fire Company. The number of emergency calls is on the rise so let’s match these numbers with an increased number of volunteers. Whether you are someone considering making firefighting your career, an empty-nester trying to figure out where you are needed next, a community youth seeking to learn more about fire/rescue safety, or a retiree with skills who would like to get more involved with your community, there is a volunteer role for you in our organization. Volunteering is one of the best ways to get the necessary training and experience to be an attractive candidate for a career firefighting position. If you crave adventure there is nothing more thrilling or challenging than fighting a fire, riding fast in fire truck, or climbing an aerial ladder to reach a rescue point. Thrills aside, being a volunteer comes with a great amount of rewards and personal satisfaction.
Not everyone in our membership is an active firefighter. There are many needs throughout the department. Filling an administrative role or providing support as an auxiliary member may be just what you’re searching to do.
