If you want to make a difference in your community, earn the respect of your neighbors, and join a team of men and women who forge lifetime bonds through courageous volunteerism, we encourage you to contact us below so we can get you started. We provide volunteers with the highest quality training available to provide South Kingstown with the best-trained firefighters and emergency responders.
We welcome young men and women who want to serve their community for as long as they want. Some stay a few years and others for decades. Many of our volunteers start with us and make a career in the fire service and the district provides members the option to prepare for a paid fire department. Some follow a medical path, others learn a lot of new skills and use them in their current or future jobs.
It takes a team to fight fires, but members have different responsibilities. It’s very important to be honest if you’re afraid of heights or have any other concerns. You will never be asked to do a task with which you are not comfortable. There are many critical roles and we’ll help you find the one that’s right for you!
