Fire Corps

Fire Corps is a locally driven Citizen Corps program that allows community members to offer their time and talents to their local fire departments. Fire Corps serves as a gateway to information for and about fire department programs.

Any fire service affiliated organization that utilizes citizen advocates constitutes a Fire Corps program. Citizen advocates allow fire departments to focus on providing fire and rescue services by taking on non-operational tasks, including, but not limited to:

  • Administrative functions
  • Life safety education
  • Fundraising
  • Explorer programs
  • Data entry and bookkeeping
  • Canteen services
  • Research
  • Apparatus and facility maintenance
