Recruitment and Retention for the Volunteer Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Auxiliary Members, and Administrative Support is much NEEDED April 15th from 1200 to 1600 hours

FIRE / EMS / AUXILIARY / ADMINISTRATIVE

Recruitment and Retention for the Volunteer Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Auxiliary Members, and Administrative Support is much NEEDED!

Recruitment and Retention for the Volunteer Fire, Emergency Medical Services and Auxiliary Members has become a need and not just a want. Volunteers are doing more with less. However, one serious dilemma we face regularly is acquiring adequate staffing to do our job safely and protect our community. When the public calls for our help, we run to their aid, but who will run to our aid when we need help?

We can call an additional alarm or rely on mutual aid, but only if the companies are available; remember it is all about recruitment and retention so the mutual aid company responding to assist with your emergency is leaving their own first due with insufficient staffing. Will these companies be readily available if you need them? There will come a time when we will be able to do only so much before our resources are depleted.

From FIRES to EMS to AUXILIARY to ADMINISTRATIVE needs and OR calls and everything in between, no matter how you look at it, the FIRES to EMS to AUXILIARY to ADMINISTRATIVE services is the last line of defense when it comes to a community in an emergency situation. So the mentality of doing more with less it not appropriate nor is safe for us to do our job. Please show your PRIDE, and be a part of the Recruitment and Retention Statewide Event April 15th from Noon- 1600.
Please call 301-994-0751 if there are questions:
