Most volunteer fire departments are struggling to fill the ranks, but this can often lead to a focus on quantity over quality when it comes to recruiting new members. And even if we are successfully getting new members to join, we still need to keep them.

Dave Denniston joins host Tom Merrill and offer ideas that can help your department achieve greater success in not only recruiting quality members, but keeping them as well.
