The Vernon Volunteer Fire Department is seeking applications for all positions within the Fire and EMS Services. What’s in it for you ? FREE gas, FREE training, new friendships and bonds, and a sense of pride knowing we are neighbors helping neighbors. What’s in it for our community?

There is a wide range of positions open, with the Number One requirement being a desire to serve your community. Other requirements for joining the Department:
- Must be 18 years of age or older (unless applying to be a Fire Explorer), no previous training or Fire/EMS service required

- Physically capable of performing the duties for which you are applying for
Available Positions Include:
- Interior / Exterior Firefighter
- Fire Ground Support
- Medical First Responder / EMT
- Radio Communications

- In House Support Staff (This is a great position for those willing to help at the station during trainings and emergency events, simple things like a hot coffee after a long night out in the cold means a lot to the other members, this role is also vital in making fund raisers successful)
All necessary training and equipment will be provided and funded by the Town of Vernon.
All interested parties are asked to submit an application to the Town of Vernon prior to Sept 30th. Need time to think about it? We will always accept new applications whenever you are ready.
