Duvall King County Fire District 45 relies on a combination of career and volunteer firefighter/EMTs.  You are welcome to contact us to learn more about our program and to add your name to a list to be notified when we begin our next recruiting drive begins. 

During a volunteer drive, Duvall Fire recruits individuals who want to be volunteer firefighter/EMTs.  Volunteer firefighter/EMTs come from all walks of life, including students, engineers, loggers, police officers, mechanics, software and IT professionals, and sales.

 

Volunteer firefighters work shifts and respond to emergencies alongside full-time firefighters, providing life-saving services to the community.  In addition, volunteer responders gain valuable skills and experience, gain confidence in their own abilities, and get to work with some great people.

Many Duvall Fire volunteer responders go on to careers as full time firefighters with Duvall or with other regional departments.

At the conclusion of their initial year of training, volunteer firefighters and EMTs receive remuneration for time spent in training and working shifts.  This can range from $400 to $1000 a month, depending on the level of experience, training, and number of shifts worked.

Candidates must be at least 18, have graduated from high school, have an insurable driving record, pass a background check, and pass the following tests: physical capability test, a written test (for assessing reading comprehension), medical exam, and psychological evaluation.

Duvall Fire serves the City of Duvall and surrounding area of unincorporated King County.  The department responds to fires, aid calls, and service calls and relies on a well-trained team of volunteer and career responders.  Volunteers sign up for day shifts or night shifts, any day of the week.  Duvall Fire provides firefighter and EMS training to qualified candidates, and provides all the necessary equipment. There is no cost to the volunteer to participate in this program.

For additional information call Duvall Fire at 425-788-1625.

Becoming a volunteer firefighter/EMT is a significant commitment.  But the rewards and satisfaction are tremendous.
