By Administration R Ehlers
February 12, 2021

To better support and protect our community, Vashon Fire is looking to recruit more on island Firefighters (Volunteers who live on Vashon Island and are trained to respond to fire related emergencies).

The most needed area for new Volunteer Firefighters is Dockton, where we are in need of at least 2 but preferably 3-4 new Volunteer Firefighters to have the Dockton station become active again. Of course you need not live on Dockton to apply, because we need responders all over the island! The Districts plans is to run a Fire Academy starting this April, you can find the training calendar below. There is also additional information on both the Volunteer page of this website.

The District will be hosting virtual recruitment events to explain the process, commitment and expectations for being a Volunteer Firefighter with our District. We will be explaining the application process, training commitments, ongoing response requirements and of course answer any questions. The Application Deadline is February 28th, and the screening processes will occur during the month of March.

Below you will find the date, time and zoom links for these information sessions. The password for all these sessions is VOLUNTEER
