Gallatin Fire Protection District is 100% Volunteer Firefighters.
Becoming a Volunteer Firefighter with the Fire District is very rewarding, yet very challenging and time consuming. You will get the opportunity to serve the citizens of your community and help protect Gallatin and surrounding Townships.
Newly appointed Volunteer Firefighters will have to attend classes and become certified to a minimum level of: Basic Firefighter, Hazardous Materials Awareness or Hazardous Materials Operations, Emergency Medical First Responder and must complete NIMS (National Incident Management System) training. Volunteer Firefighters may then have the opportunity to attend classes for several other higher level certifications.
Gallatin Fire Protection District Volunteers meet monthly for drills, training, apparatus checks and special information. Members also attend any district training, as scheduled by the Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief or Training Officer.
Applications will be reviewed by the District selection committee and applicants will be interviewed by the selection committee as needed to fill vacant positions. Applicants that are selected by the committee will have to complete and pass any testing or training deemed necessary by the District before becoming a Volunteer Firefighter.
