Have you ever wanted to be a part of something exciting that really made a difference in someone’s life? If so, Northwest Volunteer Fire Department is looking for quality people who want to excel. The Northwest Volunteer Fire Department serves 22 square miles of Northwest Harris County along the Veterans Memorial, SH 249, and North Sam Houston Tollway corridors. We are staffed by full time, part time, and volunteer Firefighters, Firefighter/EMT's, and Firefighter Paramedics 24/7. All 4 of our fire stations are staffed with a minimum of 3 personnel 24 hours a day to ensure a quick response. We serve the following subdivisions with quality Fire Suppression, Fire Education, Rescue Services, and Community Risk Reduction programs:
Don't want to go charging into burning buildings? We do have other areas where you can help. We have a support staff made up of dedicated volunteers who provide much needed support on the scene outside of the burning buildings. We have also started a program to allow individuals certified as EMT or higher, to staff our First Responder Medical Squads. They are not required to become firefighters.
What are the requirements to volunteer? We ask for 48 hours per month from our volunteers. These hours can be accumulated by doing 6, 10, 12, 18, or 24-hour shifts. We conduct training every Monday night from 7:00 P.M. until about 9:30-10:00. NWVFD responds to approximately 150-250 calls for service a month. You do not need to live in our district to be a NWVFD volunteer.
How much does it cost? It only cost some of your time and effort. NWVFD provides all protective equipment and training.
