On-Demand Webinar - Everything You Wanted to Know About Your VFD - But Were Afraid to Ask

If you're not focused on volunteer recruitment and retention for your volunteer fire departments -- what are you focused on? 

None of the "widgets" of the volunteer fire service (apparatus, stations and equipment) are of any value without the proper quantity and quality of volunteers to make it all work. To reframe the statement, 100% of the widgets of the fire service are 100% useless without the proper quantity and quality of volunteers to make it all work!!!

Whether your municipality takes a hands-off or a highly-engaged approach to providing fire protection and emergency services to your community, local government is ultimately responsible for supporting and helping your volunteer fire department survive and thrive. The value of your volunteer fire department cannot be calculated by just the services they perform, but must account for the total impact having a VOLUNTEER fire department has on your citizens, including but not limited to it being part of the very fabric of what makes your municipality a community.

This conversation will outline some of the forces converging on today's volunteers and will focus on offering solutions for the community and its first responders to move forward together towards adequate and affordable public safety services.
