We are currently accepting applications for Support Volunteer. Application and details below.
Keeping firefighters safe and healthy is our goal. The Molalla Fire District has a support team that helps the district during fires and other activities that require operations other than firefighting or working on the ambulance. This team is called out to major events to set up a station to take vital signs, hydrate and nourish the firefighters so they are able to continue working. The team also has three Chaplains that are available to help citizens of a catastrophe sort through what comes during and after the event. They are also available to help the district staff and volunteers through any event that might affect them also.
The support team currently works on a three day, twenty-four hour on-call shift that has a three day rotation schedule. They are available to respond most any time during their shift so that the fire crews are taken care of. Occasionally the support team responds to water rescues, police stand-offs, training programs and other events that have a long duration for district volunteers and staff. To become a part of the Support Team, you can simply fill out one of our volunteer applications, pass a background check and a basic physical agility test. We welcome new members and take pride in what we can do for our firefighters, emergency response personnel and our community!
