WANTED A VOLUNTEER? HOW TO BECOME PART OF THE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT!


Volunteer fire department

You have fire in your heart but have already given up your dream of being a firefighter? Do you think you are too small, too old or not technically gifted? That doesn't matter! Anyone who wants to be a savior can also become a savior themselves!

At almost 40 years old, but only 1.60 m and under 60 kg, as a woman joining the fire department? Of course it works – so you can too! That's why today in the series “How will you...? – Fire department!” If you are looking for a new challenge, if you want to be actively involved in your community, then you should consider the volunteer fire department.

WHY? HERE ARE 3 GOOD REASONS:

Teamwork: You learn to work in a team in critical situations. And teamwork isn't just fun in the cockpit of a Eurofighter! Skills: First aid, technical know-how and of course fire extinguishing techniques. You will become an all-rounder when it comes to security. Community: You give something back and become a hero in your community. Who wouldn't want to be celebrated as a local superhero?

HOW CAN YOU START?

Inform yourself at your local fire department. Go to a practice and get clothes and a “beeper.” The first stage of training is the (modular) squad training, here you will learn the basics of the fire service. After that, like in a computer game, you can unlock many more stages: sparking, driving a fire truck (machinist), fighting fires (respiratory protection wearer) and dismantling cars.

So put on your helmet and let’s go!
