The Lynnwood Fire Department is dedicated to protect life, property and the environment through education, prevention and emergency response to medical, fire, rescue and hazardous conditions.
When you think of fire department volunteers, it may bring up images of people pulling hose and going up ladders but that is not always the case.
Lynnwood Fire Department is looking for a different kind of volunteer. If you are interested in using your skills to make the community safer, this group may be for you.
Fire Corps is a newly established group that aids the fire department by promoting fire and life safety programs in homes, schools, businesses and other community groups. Fire Corp members help the Lynnwood Fire Department in getting life safety messages to many more members of the public than our current resources allow.
They aid in bringing disaster preparedness into neighborhoods, provide information on safety at local events and come to the aid of fellow residents during a disaster.
To accomplish this Fire Corps members are trained in many areas of fire and life safety. This enables them to answer questions from community members and speak knowledgeably on important safety topics. They conduct fire station tours and provide staffing for public education booths at schools, churches and other community events.
