Greenwich Fire Department in Need of Volunteers


The Greenwich Fire Department is actively seeking Volunteer Firefighters and Fire Police, to join the 7 Volunteer Fire Companies/1 Fire Police Patrol with in the Town of Greenwich. Volunteer members of the Greenwich Fire Department work along the Career Firefighters as a team in mitigating emergency fire calls. You will be taught the skills both in house and outside of the department in order to operate safely. The Department will provide the personal protective gear that you will need to get the job done.
