Some frequently asked questions about volunteering
 
Q: How much time does it take to be a volunteer?
A: The first year is demanding due the amount of training you will have to complete, and other responsibilities you assume as a probationary member. After that it varies from week to week, but on the average you’ll put in about eight hours. Many volunteers enjoy putting in more. It's based on our call volume. For probationary members it's 35%


 Q: What will my training cost?
A: It will cost you nothing. Thousands of dollars of valuable career training will be made available to you free of charge.


Q: How long will it be before I can make a genuine contribution?
A: Immediately. And your responsibilities will increase as you gain experience and training.


Q: Will I have any out-of-pocket costs?
A: No. Your uniform, equipment – even your annual physical – will be provided for free.


Q: How do I get started?
A: Call us at (631) 588-0099 and we’ll help you get started. Ask if we are in your local Fire District, because District lines often overlap town lines. Don’t assume that the nearest station is necessarily your local agency ..
