Fire & Emergency Medical Services Training


Imagine having the opportunity to respond to almost any emergency situation – house fires, wild fires, chemical spills, heart attacks and motor vehicle collisions. As a member of Lone Oak Volunteer Fire Department, you will be trained to respond to calls day or night, in rain or snow and under potentially stressful circumstances.


You’ll have a three-month probation period and participate in a 16-hour introductory to emergency services training program.
Additional firefighting and EMR training and certifications are required.

It's a rewarding, life-changing and challenging community service opportunity.
