New members are always needed. We need folks that work every shift (emergencies don’t only happen at night!) to cover all times of the day. And you don’t need to be a firefighter to be a benefit to the company and to your community. We appreciate anything and everything that you can give, no matter how big or how small. From actively engaging in the emergency activities, to driving the apparatus, to just helping with the paperwork, everyone is appreciated. Whether it be as a fire police member who direct traffic, to exterior firefighting operations, to EMS, there is a job for everyone to do.
Anyone who lives or works in the Tioga Fire District and is 14 years old or older can join (16 & 17 year-olds require parental permission, and should fill out the junior membership application: 14 & 15 year olds require a parent/guardian who is already an active member of the fire department, and a parent or guardian needs to accompany the 14-15 year old at all fire department activities). Retirees might enjoy the opportunity to stay active and challenge themselves both physically and mentally. Volunteering with the emergency squad is a great way for students to acquire some basic skills, learn a little terminology, and further evaluate a medical career. If you are new to the area, becoming a member is a great way to become involved in the community and meet new people.
