  Recruitment Division E-mail: membership@whvfc.org

WHVFC is constantly in search of new members. The good news is that NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED! The Department will provide all of the training and equipment necessary at no expense to you. You only need to provide the desire and commitment.

WHVFC is currently recruiting for three classes of volunteer membership:
• Firefighters     • Fire Police     • Junior Fire Firefighters

Firefighters participate directly in emergency response activities as well as company sponsored functions. These individuals server on the front line of fire, ems rescue and other emergency situations. Individuals interested in this class of membership must complete the Department's application process, a physical examination, and a range of firefighting training courses, including:
• WHVFC in-house recruit training program
• WHVFC recruit probationary period coursework
• NFPA hazardous materials operations course
• NFPA firefighter 1 course

After completing this coursework, a recruit firefighter earns the title of Certified firefighter. The opportunities for training and advancing your skills, however, do not end there. WHVFC maintains the highest standards for continuous training and professional certification. WHVFC both conducts additional in-house training and coordinates with the County's fire and rescue system to provide advanced training for the operational staff.

While operational membership requires a greater commitment of time than associate membership, it also provides a unique opportunity to learn and apply a wide range of emergency service skills. Admittedly, this class of membership is not for everyone. Firefighting is both potentially dangerous and hard work. You will sweat. Those who do rise to the challenge, however, learn that they gain at least as much as they contribute. Whether it is attaining professional certification, personal achievement, or helping citizens during the darkest hours, our operational members find that serving as a volunteer firefighter with WHVFC is one of the most rewarding aspects of their lives.

Fire Police members perform a wide range of support roles and activities. These members participate directly in emergency response activities by providing traffic control and scene security. Individuals interested in this class of membership must complete the Department's application process and then complete the required training.

To learn more, please contact the station.  An application can be downloaded from the link at the top of this page or stop by for an application. Please submit all applications in a sealed envelope addressed to "Membership Committee".  Company Meetings are held every other Thursday at 8PM. The meetings are conducted at the station located at 19 Locust Avenue, Hamilton NJ 08610

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
