A little about joining our dynamic team......
Volunteer Firefighters assist the community by providing support with emergency and non-emergency services.
Our volunteers are fully trained and certified to manage a variety of emergencies: structure and wildland fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials incidents. Our Volunteers also perform rescue duties during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, and mudslides. Volunteer Firefighters receive ongoing training in the latest emergency response techniques and technology. Responses to medical emergencies constitutes the majority of our emergency responses.
Our Volunteer Firefighters operate and maintain the fire station’s firefighting equipment, and keep the station ready to react to any emergency situation in the community it serves. In addition to assigned hours at the station, Volunteer Firefighters are on call for emergency response 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year round. Wilmar Firefighters respond to over 350 calls each year including responses to structure, wildland, and vehicle fires as well as medical emergencies and public assistance calls. Medical emergencies account for 80% of our emergency calls.
In addition, special non-emergency volunteer positions are available such as administrative support, mechanic and fundraiser support.

Fire Explorer Program
Wilmar Fire began a Fire Explorer Program in the year 2000, which has been a huge success to this day. High School students interested in the fire service are given a “hands-on” approach to all the different duties and responsibilities of a Firefighter. Many of our Explorer’s go on to become Volunteer Firefighters for Wilmar, and some eventually end up with paid career jobs in the fire service!
