As more and more families move into rural communities, additional volunteers are necessary to meet the need for increased service. These volunteers are custodians, deputies, office workers, foresters, social workers, salesmen, housewives, students, farmers, and the list continues... They are men and women who are dedicated to helping their neighbors and improving the safety of their community. There is a critical need for volunteer firefighters and first responders in Barron County.

The need is not only for those willing to become trained firefighters, rescuers, and emergency medical personnel; volunteers are also needed to assist with the day-to-day operations of a department such as office duties, maintenance of buildings and vehicles, food preparation during emergencies, and other assignments.

Remember, being involved with emergency services in your community is neighbor helping neighbor. Please contact your local department to volunteer!
