Is anything truly worthwhile easy? It takes a bit of time and effort to complete the required training, but there is lots of encouragement and help along the way. We try to work with people’s schedules as much as we can as well.
In dollars and cents, no. In experience and opportunity, yes! The feeling you get from doing something valuable for others is a feeling that makes it worthwhile.
Once you have finished the required training you will be able to perform fire suppression duties.
Nothing. Just your time and commitment
Fire Corps is another volunteer opportunity. As a Fire Corps volunteer you will aid Boardman Fire & Rescue District with non-emergency tasks allowing district members to better protect our community from fires, natural disasters, and other incidents.
