Thank you for your interest in membership of the Wolcott Fire Department, Inc. This completely Volunteer organization has been providing emergency services to the Town of Wolcott since 1934. Today, that tradition still carries on because of individuals like you, giving time and energy to protect their neighbor. Some have gone on to serve in larger, career departments. Many of our members, both past and present have made a lifelong commitment to this cause. As a firefighter for the Town of Wolcott, you will be responsible for the safety and well being of anyone who is in need of our assistance. Membership in the department should not be taken lightly. Although we are a small town we do see our share of true emergencies.
Strengthening the organization is your camaraderie, friendship, and social benefits that will usually last a lifetime. Other benefits of membership in the Wolcott Volunteer Fire Department include, but are not limited to:
- Free state certification fire service courses - $5.00 per call stipend, paid quarterly - Length of Service Benefit Plan - $10,000 Life Insurance (on or off-duty coverage) - Paid physical exams - Worker's Compensation plan - Self-esteem - Pride in what you are doing
Your application will be forwarded to our office. Once we have had a chance to review your application, it will be forwarded to an officer of one of our companies. An officer from that company will contact you and explain the procedures necessary in completing the application process. After your application is brought to the general membership of the company, you may be voted in as a probationary member, at which time bunker gear and a pager will be issued.
Again, I wish to thank you for your interest and time. I hope to see you soon responding with us to our neighbors' calls for assistance. Remember, together we can make a big difference in someone's life.
Kyle Dunn, Fire Chief Wolcott Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.
