Volunteering allows us to give something back to our communities. Today, there are so many demands on our time. There are probably tens of reasons not to volunteer. However, if you have a sense of civic pride, if you want to see immediate results of a job well done, if you have the heart and spirit to make your community a better place, consider volunteering with your local fire department. This will give you a challenging, exciting and rewarding experience. For more information on how to become a volunteer firefighter, call 509-767-1252.
