The National Volunteer Fire Council supports the nation’s volunteer fire and emergency services. Volunteers make-up 67 percent of our nation’s fire service and protect their neighbors in all kinds of emergencies.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, many volunteer fire departments are facing unprecedented challenges and have experienced a significant strain on their resources and staffing. It is critical that departments are able to keep up with service demands and maintain adequate staffing so that they can continue to be there for their communities now and in the future.

The public can be part of the solution by stepping up to serve as a fire service volunteer. Whether as a firefighter, EMS provider, or a support/admin member, anyone can give back to their community in this impactful and meaningful way.
