Are you up for a challenge? Do you think you have what it takes? Then come on in and join us today --VOLUNTEER!
Volunteering is not for everyone and volunteering to be a firefighter takes a special kind of person! Looking for something challenging, rewarding and somewhere you can help make a difference? Then check out your local fire department. The fire department is always looking to train new people. There is nothing like the feeling you get when the alarm goes off and a call comes over the radio that someone is in distress and needs your help. Better yet, it costs you nothing! All it takes is some of your time, dedication and willingness and Newport Fire provides the rest! We have a great crew of career and volunteer staff always willing to help you get through the process. It's easier than you think...
For volunteer information, just call Melanie at 541-265-9461 or stop by the station located at 245 NW 10th Street and pick up your application.
