Recruiting veterans into the volunteer fire service can be a great solution to our staffing challenges. Think about it, we don’t have to teach them discipline, respect, honor, chain-of-command or teamwork — and in return we offer the camaraderie, adrenaline rush, teamwork and sense of value that they miss from active duty. And we’re convinced we can save lives by doing it.
There’s an army of volunteers out there just waiting to be asked. Soldier|Firefighter just may be a perfect fit for your fire company.
