Eldon Fire Department
The City of Eldon Fire Department is recruiting Volunteers.
We need your help. If it were not for volunteers, three-fourths of the United States would be without adequate fire protection...including the community in which you live.
Few jobs offer the challenges and rewards that volunteer fire, rescue and emergency services offer. But this business is not for everyone. You need courage, dedication and a willingness to learn new skills. And you need to be able to conquer new and diverse challenges.
As a volunteer, you must meet certain requirements to even be accepted. Then you will be trained to react with confidence to all sorts of emergency situations--from childbirth to fire to hazardous spills.
The work is not all that glamorous, either. It can be hot, sweaty, strenuous, dirty and often hazardous.
In spite of the the hardships connected with the job, the rewards are incredible if you consider respect and appreciation reward enough: Saving a neighbor's home from burning to the ground, or saving a child from injury or possible death. These require acting with courage in the face of danger. And these are the volunteer's reward of personal satisfaction.
So, if you have the strong desire to help, and you believe that you have what it takes to meet the challenges, stop by the Eldon Fire Station and talk to us. Join the team that protects the dreams in your community.
