More than tough...
Not all volunteer jobs are fighting fire. Other jobs include driving and operating trucks and delivering emergency medical care.
Responding to emergencies is a special calling. Being a volunteer firefighter or EMT is an invaluable service to your community. There are a few opportunities for someone like you to make such a difference in people's lives. Nothing is more worth your time.
Because it does. Your first thought may be you're not trained to fight fires, drive trucks, deliver medical aid. You'll receive training and education on the most current technology and equipment to hone your first responder skills.
