We welcome your interest in applying for membership in Vista Fire Department! Vista FD is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing effective emergency services (fire, rescue, and EMS) to the Vista Fire District community. We take our mission seriously! We seek individuals who can advance a hose into a burning building, stop the bleeding of a patient, drive an ambulance, or operate a pumper. In a genuine emergency, lots of able hands are needed. If you are willing and able, we’ll provide the emergency services training.
However, we also seek members with expertise in accounting, communication, computers, finance, food preparation, grant writing, law, marketing, public relations, and numerous other skills to help us in areas other than direct emergency operations. Most importantly, we seek individuals with a willing, can-do attitude who can reliably contribute to a team.
Although membership is voluntary, we consider it a commitment. All members are expected to attend meetings and to maintain proficiency in their role within the Department. In addition, Active members are expected to drill weekly and respond to emergency calls.
You won’t mistake us for a social club – this is a serious, disciplined, life-saving endeavor. We believe you will find participation in Vista FD to be an extraordinarily challenging and satisfying experience.
