Fire Department Volunteering

The Fire Department integrates volunteer members alongside full-time career firefighters to help protect our community. It was established to provide Palm Coast Volunteer Firefighters with leadership, volunteer representation and training to support many of its community programs and needs.

Volunteer as a Firefighter
This program allows for experienced and non-experienced personnel to, in a safe manner, work in the prevention and suppression of fires. Firefighters are responsible for responding to emergency situations and assisting in the control and resolution of the situation. Through the program, interns receive training, participate in "ride alongs" with career staff, and begin to form a path into a career with fire service.

Firefighter Intern

This program provides a path from volunteer to career firefighter positions. It is expected that the candidate will enroll in the required educational programs to become a firefighter/EMT or Paramedic while volunteering. In return, the City will give employment preference to those that are participating over others.

Fire Police

This program provides vital protection for emergency workers operating on or near the roadway, such as during vehicle fires and vehicle accidents. Fire police direct and calm traffic to maintain a safe area around the emergency scene. Fire police also provide safety for fire apparatus and hoses working at fires in residential areas.

Associate Members

This program affords the citizens of our community the ability to contribute their talents and services to further the work of the Department. Many tasks include administrative duties, public education, and more.

The future focus of the Palm Coast Volunteers will be to enhance the training of its members and continue the support of providing that protection to our neighbors and to serve as a vital part of any community.
