Fire Fighting is not for everyone, but volunteering can be!
The fire service is a challenging endeavor. It is this challenge that inspires most men and women to enter the fire service as a volunteer. This endeavor is not for everyone however. You need more than just desire to help people. You need courage, dedication, assertiveness and a willingness to learn new skills and face new challenges.
The personal rewards and satisfaction received from the volunteer fire service are often beyond description. There is a sense of accomplishment after controlling a building fire, joy and elation when a life is saved, compassion for accident victims, and fulfillment in teaching fire safety.
To become a member of the Blair Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department, you must be 20 years of age and be willing to participate in the many functions of the department. Some of these include drills (held three times per month), monthly meetings, special meetings, fundraising activities like Pancake Feed, Street Dance, work details and the like. Please contact Fire Chief Joe Leonard at 402.426.4262 for more information or to request an application.
