So You Want to Volunteer?

Volunteering with the Dashwood Fire Department can be an incredible way to give back to your community.  You need more than just a desire to help people; You also need courage and dedication, assertiveness and a willingness to face new challenges. Our service is one of which calls on its members to perform hot, sweaty, dirty, strenuous work often in uncertain and hazardous environments. 


Still Interested?

We also guarantee that your time spent volunteering with us will be one of the most rewarding experiences you've ever had.  We very frequently hear our volunteers say, "Why didn't I do this sooner?"  Dashwood's volunteers are invited to our family barbeques and outings, and we always try to work with members' schedules as much as we possibly can. With a fitness center, off-duty insurance and compensation put in place for your time spent volunteering with us, the Dashwood Volunteer Fire Department is a team you'll be proud to be a part of!
