It’s National Volunteer Week, and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) thanks all of the volunteer first responders and Fire Corps members who protect their communities and keep the nation safe.
Volunteers make up 71 percent of the fire service. The United States relies on the over 1 million volunteer firefighters, EMS providers, and rescue workers who put their community members and the call of service above themselves. Communities depend on their dedication and commitment every day of the year. The NVFC says thank you to volunteers for all they do to strengthen our communities and protect those in need.
The NVFC also appreciates the efforts of the Fire Corps volunteers who provide support to their local emergency service departments. Their contributions help local departments thrive and increase the preparedness and safety of your communities.
The NVFC is here to support the volunteer emergency services and provide tools, resources, and programs to assist you in your efforts, whether it relates to advocacy, funding, retention and recruitment, health and safety, or a myriad of other emergency service issues.
