Become A Fire Fighter Volunteer

Why should I join the Crawford County Fire Department as a volunteer?

The Crawford County Fire Department (CCFD) is an all Volunteer Fire Department that is always looking for new volunteers willing to serve in protecting the lives and property of Crawford County residents. Living in a small county like Crawford provides citizens this opportunity to play a vital role in public safety and provide numerous benefits to the residents and merchants of Crawford County.

As an all Volunteer Fire Department, CCFD needs an adequate number of dedicated and trained volunteers to maintain a professional Fire Department. Volunteers, male and female, are recruited locally and attend training classes periodically. There are currently eight volunteer fire stations throughout the county.  These members respond directly to the scene of an alarm when alerted through the use of pagers.  Those with special skills may be requested to perform additional functions on a volunteer basis such as administrative work, emergency planning, fundraising, coordinating community service events, grant research or training.
