VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Join Our Team!

Below are the different volunteer opportunities we have available at Canby Fire. Switch between the tabs to view them all. If you are interested in applying, please click the button to the left. All of the below positions require an application and the passing of a background check prior to onboarding.

Our active Rehab group responds to various incidents, including fires. This group aids our firefighters, both volunteer and career, by providing food and water as well as monitoring vital signs.

As trained and organized teams within the Fire District, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) members receive training from Canby Fire for manmade or natural disasters to assist Canby Fire in areas with need. Volunteers are trained in basic first aid/CPR Incident Command, and minor search and rescue for a neighborhood situation. After initial training, members should attend 2 drills per year to exercise preparedness levels.

Our Chaplains respond on scene when they are needed to support families, our first responders, and patients. Being a Chaplain is a vital role to fill and is essential for the well-being of our community.

Volunteer Firefighters that may be retired from firefighting that want to be apparatus operators for water tenders. Canby has two water tankers that carry 3000 and 1800 gallons of water in areas without water already available. Required training is less than a full-time volunteer firefighter with reduced physical requirements.

“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

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 Intern program is designed for those individuals wanting to pursue a career in the fire and EMS service while attending school for a fire-related program. Residency position may be available at one of our stations as well. These members operate on the same shift schedule as our paid crews and receive 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.

Our main office is occasionally in need of volunteers to help with basic office duties and coverage during high demand work times. High school students are able to earn volunteer credits/hours for their time. Non-credited time may be compensated.
