Currently recruiting for the following positions:
We are seeking volunteers with and without prior firefighting experience. EMT not required upon hire but preference will be given.
OUR VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS are a crucial part of our daily operations. Within our department, volunteers are required to attend 80% of quarterly training opportunities, work four 12-hour shifts per month, and provide back up staffing during general alarms. We also require that our volunteers obtain their IFSAC Firefighter 1 certification (at a minimum) as well as their Washington State EMT-B certification. Riverside Fire & Rescue offers recruitment opportunities for those volunteers who wish to serve their community as a trained First Responder. We recruit new volunteers 2-3 times per year (depending on availability).
