There is a great deal of excitement and a sense of accomplishment that comes with extinguishing a structure fire, extricating a trapped patient from their vehicle, or saving a patient's life. The satisfaction, camaraderie, and experience received from the fire and rescue service is often beyond description. However, this business is not for everyone. Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians need courage, dedication, assertiveness, and above all a desire to help others in need. Our volunteers perform strenuous work that tests their abilities in uncertain and often hazardous situations. Men and women age 16 and older who are in good physical condition and have the desire to serve as firefighters or EMTs are eligible for membership. Members of the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department have nearly endless opportunities for training and advancement. Your advancement is only limited by the level of certification, training, and experience you reach. The commitment to serve as a volunteer firefighter or EMT with the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department is a serious decision and should not be made quickly. Once you understand what is involved, we hope you will find that you are able to make the commitment we need to contribute to the safety of the community and its citizens. You will find that participation as a volunteer with the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department will be unlike any experience you have had or will ever have.
