Eastside Fire & Rescue is seeking the next generation of volunteer firefighters.
To be eligible for consideration, you must live within 5 road miles of an EFR station and meet other minimum qualifications. The agency will host a training academy at the end of summer.
After initial training, volunteers are required to attend weekly training sessions, and assist in emergency and non-emergency response when requested and/or available.
The deadline to apply is May 30, 2014. To learn more and to find application instructions, visit eastsidefire-rescue.org.
Currently, there are almost 70 volunteers in the EFR system, which manages six all-volunteer and nine career-staffed stations. Volunteers are especially needed for the Tiger Mountain, Preston, Wilderness Rim, Lake Joy, South Cove and Maple Hills communities.
In addition to the City of Issaquah, EFR members include the cities of North Bend and Sammamish, and King County fire protection districts 10 and 38.
