If you are interested in volunteering as a firefighter, please contact us at (910) 579-2355.

All members need to make a firm commitment to the Department. The expectations are:

  • All members will treat others in a professional and respectful manner
  • You will be required to follow all rules and regulations of the Department
  • You will be required to attend at least 36 hours of training per year
  • You will be expected to respond to as many emergency calls as you can
  • You will need to maintain a valid North Carolina Driver's License
  • You must not be involved in any criminal litigation
  • No drinking of alcoholic beverages or use of illegal drugs will be tolerated on the Fire Department property or when responding to emergency calls or attending training sessions
  • Profanity will not be tolerated
  • No type of harassment (sexual, discriminatory etc.) will be tolerated

The Officers of the Department will be in charge at all emergency calls and training sessions. They will provide you with what protective equipment they deem necessary and will provide the training and guidance you will require for membership.

A background check will be done on you. If any false information is found on your application, you will be terminated from membership.

You will be voted into probationary membership after attending 3 training sessions. You will remain a probationary member for 6 months. At the end of 6 months, your progress will be evaluated and a decision made about permanent membership, termination of membership, or extension of probation.

We would be glad if you decide to join us.
