It takes special people to fill the roles of volunteer fire and rescue workers. We’re often asked what it is that drives our members and inspires them to continue serving. Here are a few of our top motivations.
Speak to any member of our team and you’re sure to find people with hearts drawn to serve. Giving back to the community in which they live is the number one reason our members volunteer. In recent years, there’s been a volunteer firefighter shortage nationwide. Many have been called to serve and continue to serve to ensure that Prince William County continues to see the high-quality, uninterrupted fire and rescue services we’ve come to count on.
These members with hearts to serve find their worth and happiness through giving back to others. The value and worth volunteer fire and rescue workers receive drives them to continue for years, because they love what they do. Whether it’s teaching fire safety to kids in schools or at health fairs, responding to calls, taking part in department fundraisers or completing the next level of their training, there’s never a need to question whether you’re making a difference when you’re a member of this team. The answer is always an emphatic “yes.”
Connections to Others
Ask any firefighter or rescue worker, and they’ll tell you the comradery in the departments can’t be matched anywhere else. Volunteering beside others and serving the community in times of need creates a unique bond within teams. From serving on shifts to taking part in fundraisers and social events, our team members will tell you how incredible it is to be a part of the Prince William County Fire and Rescue System.
As a volunteer, you have access to constant training and advancement opportunities. While you might not be paid to rise through the ranks, the experience and the education often directly correlates to our members’ daytime careers. Service to others in this form is extremely appealing to employers and speaks volumes about your dedication and abilities.
Do your values and interests align with our members? Then come join us! We’re accepting applications for new volunteers in all positions, including administrative positions. Find out what it means to be part of a passionate team that’s changing lives every day.
