So you don't want to go charging into burning buildings? We have a support staff made up of dedicated volunteers who provide much needed support on the scene outside of the burning buildings. How much does it cost? It only costs you some time. Northwest Volunteer Fire Department provides all protective equipment and training.
 
     What are the requirements to volunteer? It depends strictly as to where you live. If you do not live within our response area, or within a .25 mile radius around our response territory, or 2 miles driving distance to one of our local fire stations, please see requirements below for out of district volunteering. However if you DO live close enough to meet the requirements above you must attend 4 hours of training a month and 18% of the calls that Northwest VFD responds to or 48 hours of shift work. We conduct training every Monday night from 7:00 P.M. until about 9:30-10:00. What does 18% roughly amount to? Northwest Volunteer Fire Department responds to approximately 150-250 calls for service a month. This means to stay active as a volunteer you must respond to somewhere from 27-45 calls a month or devote 48 hours of shift work. Most volunteers find this to be very minimal. So, you have decided you want to try it and see if it is for you, here are your next steps. Come by our training location (7706 Fallbrook Dr, Houston, TX 77086) on a Monday night at 7:00 P.M. and fill out an application. From there you may continue to visit us on Monday nights until we have had time to review your application. When we review your application we conduct a criminal background check and driving record check. You must NOT have any criminal offenses on your record, NONE, and be willing to submit to drug testing prior to and randomly during your membership with Northwest VFD!!! You must also have no more than 2 moving violations in the three years prior to be able to drive the fire apparatus.
 
    So you do not live in our response area but you still want to volunteer, NO PROBLEM! We have the program perfect for your needs by becoming and out of district volunteer. Out of district volunteers must attend four hours of training a month with the other volunteers on Monday nights and must ride one 12 hour shift per week or 48 hours per month.
 
    We have a place for some quality people.
