Diane says: Volunteer firefighter applications have increased since The Chronicle featured Toledo Fire Department’s plea for new candidates March 24, 2017. She went on to thank everyone for their part in promoting local emergency services.
Due to recent publicity on several fronts - local banners, online and print media - Toledo’s trademark strong volunteerism is buoying hope in the Department.
In addition to online applications, those interested can attend a weekly Monday drill held 7 p.m. at Station #2 (main station, 150 North Second Street, Toledo, WA 98591) to get a first-hand view of ongoing training.
Candidates are subject to background checks, must be 18 years of age,* able to respond to the main station within 15 minutes of the tone, and maintain at least 10% response rate on callouts.
Update: Saturday’s First Aid/CPR class has been filled. Toledo Fire Department offers these courses twice yearly to the community. Volunteers get their course as part of their training. One more reason...
Toledo Fire Department is also on Facebook.
*Junior firefighters aged 16-17 are also strongly encouraged to get on board. Nothing enhances your resume’ like volunteering with the fire department.
