Volunteer Benefits

Junction City volunteer firefighters are rewarded with benefits & incentives 
We appreciate and reward our volunteers. As a volunteer with the Junction City Fire Department you are entitled to several benefits and incentives.
  • Resident VolunteerProgram
  • Membership in the Fire Fighters Association
  • Social & Recognition Events
Volunteer applicants are issued protective gear. Training activities are scheduled through the Training Captain for Operations & Training. After successful completion of initial training, volunteers begin a one-year probation period during which time they are assigned to a mentor. Mentors ensure that volunteers understand procedures and policies and assist them with any needs that arise.
Training opportunities continue for volunteers throughout their career with the department.

Resident Program
Volunteers in good standing and hold a nationally recognized EMT certification or higher are eligible to participate in the Resident Program. Interested applicants must apply through the Fire Chief and will be notified if a vacancy occurs. Applicants are reviewed by the Personnel Review Board.

Fire Fighter's Association
Members and their families can participate in the Fire Fighter's Association; a non-profit group that provides community assistance such as adopt-a-family and Safe House as well as social activities such as the annual barbecue.

Social & Recognition Events
Throughout the year, volunteers are invited to attend family social events and an annual recognition ceremony.
