Call for Members

The Richfield Volunteer Fire Company needs more staff, specifically Paid-on-Call and Part-Time members, to continue fulfilling our mission.

Paid-on-Call members are citizens that may serve their community as a Paid-on-Call EMT, firefighter, or both. No previous EMS or firefighting experience is needed to join, and training to obtain initial state certifications is provided with no cost to the member via courses at local technical colleges. Upon successful completion of the probationary period, Paid-on-Call members are paid hourly while on a call. There are many options available to members to specialize in further training such as vehicle extrication, rescue and recovery dive, hazardous materials, fire inspections, etc.; as well as attend additional state certification courses. Paid-on-Call members must live within the service area we cover, or within 2 miles from the borders. If you are interested in becoming a Paid-on-Call member, please stop by Station 2 or give us a call at (262)628-1601 to discuss joining our team!

Part-Time employees are those who work shifts from 8am-6pm Monday through Friday. Requirements for part-time employees include EMT-Basic and Firefighter 1, with additional certifications preferred. These employees submit their availability monthly, and there is flexibility in scheduling shifts around full-time employment and school, making it a great option for those with existing commitments.

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, some of these skills may include advertising, event planning, grant writing, recruitment, accounting, business management, vehicle maintenance, etc.
