Do you have the dedication and drive to do something great?
The Port Gibson Volunteer Fire Department is always seeking new members to add to its ranks. If you have an interest in serving the community in this important role, we invite you to talk with us about membership opportunities. To get started print out and submit the application at the bottom of this page.
Although you’ll receive no “pay” for this job, there are many solid benefits to becoming a member. You’ll gain valuable knowledge about fire prevention and control, see the results of teamwork, make lasting friendships, and most importantly, get the satisfaction of being able to save lives and property in your town.
We need people in all areas of the department-from interior firefighters to traffic control personnel. Regardless of your physical condition or ability, chances are we can find a role for you within our organization. Interest is the most important requirement!
We know that your time is valuable, and although becoming a volunteer firefighter does require some training (at no cost to you) we try to manage training schedules to keep them as non-disruptive as possible. Most training drills and meetings are held on Monday nights-usually right at the firehouse.
As for emergency calls, members are expected to respond to the calls for which they are available. While this usually only amounts to two or three times per month, we understand that there are times when you will not able to respond because of other obligations.
