Delaware County’s volunteer firefighters and EMTs serve at 67 fire companies around the county. Their work is supported by a host of volunteers who don’t themselves fight fires or provide medical care, but support those who do in a myriad of ways.
While all our volunteers work together to keep our community safe, each fire company and rescue squad has its own special traditions, atmosphere, and programs. Many have volunteer opportunities for teens, allowing them to train alongside adult volunteers and even assist on scene, in accordance with state laws. Some provide free, on-site housing for volunteers. Contact us and we’ll help you find the right place for you.
