Join the Grayson Fire Department


What does it take to be a volunteer firefighter at the Grayson Fire Department?

First and foremost it is a willingness and dedication to serve others in our community. Though most volunteers train to provide emergency services, there are other opportunities to serve within the department.  Some non-firefighting positions might be assisting with preventive and routine maintenance on fire apparatus and equipment, or a photographer to provide incident scene video and still images for use in training and after action reporting.  You may have experience in teaching or public speaking and can help with fire safety awareness programs or enjoy helping in community outreach like our “Shop with a Firefighter” program.  It takes much more than just trained emergency service personnel to keep the department running.
