If you live elsewhere in our viewing area, please get in touch with your local volunteer fire department to find out how you can help.  Odds are, they are looking for additional volunteers to boost the ranks.  The ways you can help are limitless and doesn't only involve firefighting.  The best way to find out where you may fit in is to call or visit your local volunteer fire department.  Take it from me, a ten year volunteer firefighter and EMT while living in Pennsylvania, departments all across our country are struggling for more help, from people like you.  Do something for your community and for yourself by reaching out and volunteering with your local fire department.
