Members Needed

Recruitment- Is there a fire in you?

With membership numbers lower than they have ever been, the Hopkinton-Ft. Jackson F.D. is seeking new members ages 16 and up.

If you have ever had a desire to make a genuine difference in our community, to be of service to others during their greatest time of need or be a part of a group that shares a unique camaraderie, then now is the time to consider volunteering. The time to volunteer is not after tragedy strikes, but rather before it strikes so you have the training on hand to minimize the effects of that tragedy.

There are many roles to fill. We respond to a variety of calls, ranging from fires, to motor vehicle accidents, to damage caused by storms. If attacking flames is not for you, then realize there are many other tasks we perform. We can find a task you are comfortable performing. Of course, if you have the desire and drive to face the flames and battle them to the end… with proper training you can do just that!

We invite you to come down anytime. We can pull some equipment out and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. If you interested, you can call Chief Parker at home to assist with any questions (Steve Parker, 328-4670).

Consider this one last thought… in our town, without volunteers, there would be nobody to respond to our emergencies. Volunteers are needed.

Thank you all for your years of support!

St. Lawrence County Fire Training Facility

Fire Training Facility. - The new "Live Fire Burn Builidng Project" is a huge undertaking for our Volunteer fire service. The need is GREAT! as training standards for firefighters mandate live fire skills training before receiving interior firefighter certifications. St Lawrence County has no facility for conducting this mandated training, and is now forced to travel outside the county in order to meet this "Live Fire" training requirements. Please visit their website to see what you can do to help... every little bit helps!
