Foothills Fire & Rescue, Call for Volunteers

from Pati Stajcar, Foothills Fire & Rescue:

It’s me your friendly bulldog of a recruiter for Foothills Fire and Rescue.

It’s that time of year again, when we ask if you’re still interested in volunteering your valuable time to become a firefighter.

Our 2014 academy will be held from Sep to mid Nov this year. During and after academy we pair you with a mentor to make sure we’re getting the information to you in a way that is easy for you to understand and that you have fun doing it.

Just to remind you of a few points of interest, all trainings and gear are free, you can stand shift from your home (even while you sleep) and you’ll be helping your family, friends and neighbors in times of need. It’s a hobby that makes a difference.

We look forward to receiving your application for membership and a copy of your driving record from the DMV so we can schedule your interview as soon as possible. Our cut off date for receiving applications for membership is Jul 1, 2014 but please don’t wait till then. We want to make sure we have enough gear and study materials for you for the academy.

You can mail, email drop off or fax your application to me. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. Send or drop your application along with your DMV record to:
