Thank you for considering volunteer opportunities with us!
We are the Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Department, (UMCVFD), Montgomery County station #14 located near the intersection of Darnestown Rd (28) and Beallsville Rd (109).
Volunteering with Fire/Rescue is very rewarding, and you have the flexibility to contribute based upon your availability. From age 16 and upward, you can choose from any combination of Fire/EMS operations, fundraising, and technical opportunities.
Fire and/or EMS – You can train to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B) as well as a Firefighter. No prior Fire or EMS experience is necessary. All training and related equipment is provided free. While the minimum age is 16 to train for Firefighter/EMT, and EMS only positions, you must be 18 before you may provide patient care or fireground operations. Training generally takes about 12-14 months or longer. As a National Registry certified EMT-B, you will be able to perform Basic Life Support (BLS) skills during medical emergencies.
Technical – We need for people who are skilled in computers, networking, security, carpentry, and other trades.
Auxiliary – The Auxiliary provides support to UMCVFD, staff the canteen (CT714), perform community outreach functions, manage the banquet hall, and host fund raising events. Additional information on the UMCVFD Auxiliary may be found at the following link:
Administrative – We need people to assist with managing finances, bookkeeping, recruiting, event planning, and community outreach.
