WHY VOLUNTEER?

Be Your Best You. Make an Impact.

Have you always wanted to serve your community in a meaningful way? For some people, it’s a sense of belonging. Of being part of something bigger than themselves. For a cause that’s higher than themselves. If you’ve ever wanted to serve your community, now is the time to stand up and be counted on. Volunteer and be your best you.

See Reasons to Volunteer

SO MANY WAYS TO VOLUNTEER

From Fighting Fires & EMS to Managing Events, Accounting & More

Yes, you can be a volunteer firefighter, EMT or paramedic — and eventually even the Fire Chief! But we’re also looking for volunteers to fill the many supporting roles that keep a Fire/EMS department going — including accountants, marketers, IT professionals, fundraising coordinators, office support staff and more. Every role is critical — whether you want to be on the front lines responding when someone calls 911, or behind the scenes keeping the fire trucks on the road and the bills paid. Volunteering at your local fire company is worth every minute. So if you’ve ever been curious about what it’s like to serve, now is a great time to find out more.

BENEFITS OF JOINING OUR FAMILY

Maryland Tax Credit, Retirement Program, Great Experience … Just to Name A Few

The real reward is how you’ll feel about yourself — but that’s just the beginning. Being a volunteer with a Harford County Fire/EMS department brings with it many benefits including a healthy state income tax deduction, a LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) with retirement benefits, scholarship opportunities, professional development and leadership training and much more. Benefits vary by department so please ask for specific information when you speak with someone from the department you apply with.
