Ross Valley Fire Department has a long tradition of volunteer fighting and has one of the last volunteer firefighting programs in Marin. Our volunteers undergo extensive training, and require certifications for many of the same standards as professional firefighters. If you’d like to volunteer for our Department, you can choose to serve either in a suppression or support role.
Ross Valley Fire Department volunteer firefighters augment the full-time paid personnel during large incidents, fires, or simultaneous incidents. Many of our volunteers are local residents who want to give back to their community they live in.
To become a volunteer firefighter, you must be at least 18 years old, a local resident, have a valid driver's license, and pass the CPAT (Candidate Physical Ability Test). To apply, visit our headquarters station at Station 19, 777 San Anselmo Avenue, San Anselmo, CA or fill out an application online.
