Volunteers Needed

Old Salem Fire Rescue is a combination paid/volunteer fire department that currently staffs 2 certified firefighters 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. Effective and safe operations at an incident requires a sufficient number of personnel to initiate and sustain the incident operation. Old Salem Fire rescue is currently in need of operations level volunteer firefighters to supplement the two on duty firefighters. We are currently seeking certified volunteer firefighters that live within the community to join our firefighting force immediately. An operations level volunteer firefighter is responsible for responding to and mitigating various types of emergencies including: building fires, fire alarms, motor vehicle crashes, vehicle fires, ground cover fires, utility related emergencies, hazardous materials incidents, water rescue incidents and various other types of emergencies.  Please contact Old Salem Fire Rescue by phone (706 453-4693) or email for more information on joining as a Volunteer Firefighter.
