Our Rehab group responds to fires where they monitor the overall health of crews and provide food, water, and a cooling area.
This is a program that operates on the same shift schedule as our paid crews and provides for reimbursement for school programs and classes related to Fire Science or Emergency Medical. This provides interns with shift experience and hands-on learning that can be applied to future fire service careers.
Canby Fire volunteers get hands-on experience with both fire and emergency medical services. Our volunteers meet weekly for training and respond on calls during their designated shifts.
Our Chaplains group consists of volunteers who respond on scene when they are needed to support families, our first responders, and patients.
If you’re interested in responding to fires on an as-needed basis but don’t necessarily have the time commitment to volunteer as a combat firefighter, a water tender driver/operator position may be the perfect fit for you! Fill out an application today or call for more details.
Our office is occasionally in need of volunteers to help with basic office duties and coverage during high demand work times. If you are interested in receiving volunteer hours, please reach out.
“This is an all volunteer group of Amateur Radio Communications Operators that serve the fire district, the county, and the state in radio voice and digital communications in the case of a major event. It’s possible that the first line of communications for first responders (fire, police, EMS) and other supported agencies could fail due to wildfires, earthquakes, and weather-related incidents. Amateur radio operators can be in service and in the air in a very short timeframe and establish communications for these agencies. Canby Fire is the lead agency for the Canby area. We will provide communications to the county, the state and federal government as directed by the authorities. If you are a licensed ham operator in the Canby area, contact us for details on how YOU can become part of your communities emergence response team. Fill out an application if you’re interested in joining this team or call with questions.” – Jerry Burn, radio operator
