Boght Community Fire Department Seeks Community Help
Since September 11th, fire and emergency service departments all across the nation are struggling with increasing demands for service coupled with reduced funding. In order to respond to these increasing demands and provide more services to the community, the Boght Community Fire District has established a Fire Corps program and is seeking volunteers to help.
Fire Corps creates opportunities for ordinary citizens to give back to their community by providing non-emergency assistance to their local fire/EMS department. From creating websites to maintaining vehicles, promoting life safety education or offering administrative assistance, you can help your community become safer and better prepared for natural disasters, terrorist threats and other emergencies.
Fire Corps, a component of the Department of Homeland Security’s Citizen Corps program, is a national grassroots effort to increase the capacity of volunteer, career and combination fire and EMS departments through the use of community volunteers. Fire Corps provides resources for departments to utilize volunteers in non-emergency roles so they can develop, implement and sustain programs and services that will help their department meet the needs of their community.
For more information or to become a Fire Corps volunteer, contact Commissioner Jake Oreshan, III at 782-0076 or via email at email@example.com
