Consider the advantages of joining the Kingwood Volunteer Fire Department as a firefighter:

If you possess a passion for serving others and are 18 years or older, volunteering as a firefighter could be a fulfilling path for you. Kingwood firefighters actively assist their community members during challenging times. Volunteers experience a deep sense of fulfillment, accomplishment, and pride in their meaningful contributions. You'll have the opportunity to acquire new skills, forge lasting friendships, become an integral part of a dedicated team, contribute positively to the community, and truly impact lives.

Among the perks we provide are compensation for each call attended and access to training through the SAFER Grant, paid specialized and technical training, West Virginia tax credits, and life insurance coverage.

Feel free to drop by the firehouse on any Monday evening between 6pm and 9pm, reach out to us via Facebook messaging, or contact a member for further information and clarification. To qualify, you must reside within the KVFD's primary response area and be at least 18 years old.

Did you know? Volunteers comprise 65% of firefighters in the U.S., and despite the crucial role they play, there has been a 10% decline in volunteer firefighter numbers since 1985. We are committed to reversing this trend by investing in our community and our volunteers. Training is on us—we prepare you to make a meaningful impact.
