Call for Volunteers
The Richfield Volunteer Fire Company needs more staff, especially volunteers, to continue fulfilling our mission. Our call volume has doubled over the last 20 years, while our membership has significantly decreased. We need your support to increase our staff. The most important way you can help is to volunteer.
Members are trained through local technical colleges where they learn State certified skills, ultimately resulting in State of Wisconsin certification for Fire or EMS classes. We pay for all training, and pay hourly while on a call. There are many options available to specialize in with further training or more certification classes, such as vehicle extrication, rescue and recovery dive, hazardous materials, fire inspections, or one of many other specialties.
We also welcome other skills where joining as an associate member may be the right fit for you. These community members have a passion to help others, but may not have the ability to serve in an active fire or EMS role. For example, skills such as advertising, event planning, grant writing, recruitment, accounting, business management, vehicle maintenance, etc.
