The Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company is always looking for persons committed to serving their community as firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and as administrative members providing behind the scenes support.
All applicants MUST:
All first responders (firefighter and EMS) are required to serve a minimum of one duty night (from 7pm to 7am) or weekend duty day (7am to 7pm) per month for the duration of their membership. This commitment is vital to ensuring we have adequate staffing to accomplish our mission of providing service to the community 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
Interested in Firefighting and/or Emergency Medical Services? Then, this is the type of membership for you! Members accepted as first responder are at least 18 years of age (16 with parental permission), in good health, and are willing to complete the extensive training equired to become a Maryland certified firefighter or EMT.
All of the training is provided at no cost once you become a member of the company!
During the roughly six to twelve months of training, you will receive both classroom and practical/hands-on instruction to become a Firefighter I or Emergency Medical Technician. In addition, all members will complete American Heart Association Basic Life Support (CPR/AED) and basic operations level training in Hazardous Materials.
We are always seeking volunteers for administrative and support roles — including administrative management, financial support, event support, community engagement, education and more!
Anyone who has an interest in providing a service to their community but does not necessarily want to complete the training and/or respond to emergencies can still become a crucial part of the EHVFC. We are always in search of new members who are willing to bring new ideas and their time to help us to continue to provide the same high level of service that we have over the years.
Administrative members are required to consistently participate and contribute to the non-emergency activities of the Company and there are many ways you can lend your passion for volunteering, background, and experience to the EHVFC.
As a 501c4 non-profit organization Earleigh heights recieves minimal finacial support from the County. Every member, regardless of status is obligated to support Earleigh Heights’ fundraising efforts. Our fundraising pays for the operation and maintenance of our station, and acquisition of new apparatus and equipment. Members are expected to support weekly bingo, twice annual bull roasts, and our annual carnival.
