Procedure for Becoming a Volunteer:
All volunteers must go through this procedure to become a volunteer with the police or fire department.
1. Complete the application. (Same application is used for both departments.)
2. A background check will be completed on all applicants.*
3. Once the applicant has passed the above steps, he or she is interviewed by the Volunteer Coordinator and/or the department supervisors in the area of interest.
The process could take as long as a month from start to finish.
*Note: Volunteer positions that do not require the volunteers to work inside the buildings will only have to go through Step 2.
