Volunteer work is one of the best ways one can help out his or her own community. With more and more organizations offering part time opportunities for volunteer work it has become easier to pick an area in which you feel you can make a difference. One such field a person can choose is volunteer firefighter work. But before you decide you must ask yourself if you are ready. Becoming a volunteer firefighter takes a lot of dedication and first a person must complete many steps.
First you must ask yourself if you are ready for such a responsibility. Volunteer fir

efighters make a commitment to the service that they cannot break. The process is long and arduous and at times may feel like it isn’t worth it. But anyone who has finished the training program can tell you it is very worth it. Only if you have what it takes.
One overlooked aspect people don’t realize before becoming a firefighter is that they should be in good shape. This doesn’t mean you should be able to run like a marathon runner or be able to bench press a car. A person should be in the best shape they can reasonably be in. You can join a gym and hone your muscles. If you start to get in shape before you decide to become a firefighter you will have a leg up on the physical aspect of the program. You should also consult your doctor or physician and get a physical to find out if you have any serious medical conditions. Those with asthma, heart conditions, or any kind of breathing issue should be wary of joining.
To officially begin first contact your local fire department on their non-emergency line. After speaking to the station officer you will be informed of various options. For example you might have the opportunity to participate in a ride along on a fire truck. This will allow you to get a great view of what it takes to be a firefighter, as well asking them for advice. Speaking with the station officer will inform you on whether this particular station offers programs for volunteer firefighters. If not you can find the nearest program over the internet.
If your local fire station does offer volunteer programs you must first fill out an application. While your application is being processed you will have to wait while they perform a background check.
If you pass the background check you can begin the program. The minimum requirement for the program is that you complete 110 hours of the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) certified course. The actual course might differ from state to state. You will be an official volunteer fire fighter upon completion of the course.
You will do a great service to your neighborhood partaking in the volunteer firefighters program. You will be saving countless lives as well as inspiring others to lend a hand and do some volunteer work as well.
