Become a Firefighter

Hoags Corners Volunteer Firefighters are molded from the desire to serve and support the very community that we all call home. They come in the form of Exterior Firefighters, Interior Structural Firefighters, Apparatus Operators and/or Fire Officers. They are neighbors helping neighbors, working as a skilled and unified team in times of need.

The job takes courage, the ability to quickly analyze every situation, physical strength, and compassion. Training and camaraderie is imperative when the risk of injury, or even death, is present on every call. Each fire scene or EMS call presets a unique challenge, but one thing is always certain — each and every firefighter always has his or her partner’s back, and they are always ready to serve.
