The Benefits of Being a Volunteer Firefighter or EMT

Volunteer first responders help their fellow citizens in times of need. Volunteers enjoy a sense of accomplishment, achievement, and pride in the work they do. You’d learn new skills, make new friends, be a part of a team, give back to the community, and make a real difference. Additionally, our volunteers at Buies Creek receive a monetary stipend for call response and duty crew assignments. 

The empty nest recruit

The kids are grown and off to college, but you’re by no means “over the hill” yet. A lot of parents who suddenly find themselves with a lot of free time find meaning in their lives by joining the volunteer department. They’re perfectly happy with the day job they already have, but by giving their time to the community through volunteer firefighting, they find a whole new “post-kid” chapter in their lives. We have opportunities for you to be come a firefighter, engineer, EMT and other support positions.

It’s a great way to make a new city a home

If you are new to our community or a Campbell University student, you can find volunteering as a way to make a tangible commitment to their new neighborhood. Whether it is to meet people from the are, gain service hours to help you with college applications, scholarships, medical school or just to serve your community, we have a place for you.

If you want to be a career firefighter, joining your local volunteer department can be a great way to get some training and experience and make yourself a more desirable candidate the next time they are recruiting at a paid staff department.
