Firefighter / Active Crew
A Roslyn Firefighter (an Active Crew Member) is a man or woman 18 years of age or older that has a passion for firefighting and serving their community.
As a firefighter your duties will include: fighting fires, running fire calls, attending community events, general cleaning and maintenance of the firehouse, and participating in the upkeep of apparatus and equipment.
Our Junior Program at the Roslyn Fire Company gives our younger volunteers the chance to learn how to become a firefighter.
Junior members are young adults between the ages of 16 and 17 that express an interest in the fire service. As a Junior, members begin to learn about Firefighting Tactics and the Fire Service as an Organization. The Junior will attend the Firefighter I course with members of other Fire companies to learn the basics of Incident Command, Fireground Operations, and Firefighting Skills.
The Class requires successful completion of a Written Final Exam as well as a Practical Skills Examination and a Structural Burn.
Fire Explorer Program
Members as young as 14 years of age who are interested in firefighting may choose to observe the Company as a “Fire Explorer”. This precedes becoming a Junior, and gives young adults the chance to see what the fire service is all about by methods of observation.
Fighting fires is not the only way to become a member of the Roslyn Fire Company. There are many positions that require the help of “behind the scenes” volunteers to keep the fire company running.
General Body Membership, for instance, is an excellent way to serve your community without running into a burning building. The station requires the help and assistance of many volunteers that dedicate their time to many different aspects of the company.
The general body includes, but is not limited to, the following positions:
- Executive Board
- Ladies Auxiliary
- Fire Police
- Relief Association
- General Body Members
