Volunteer Firefighters have been an integral part of fire service in North Palm Beach since its incorporation in 1956. Although initially utilized as the primary firefighting force within the Village and surrounding communities, Volunteer Firefighters now supplement a full contingent of career staff. Volunteer Firefighters serve alongside career personnel, and engage in firefighting and other duties depending upon their certification.
Members of the Village of North Palm Beach Volunteer Fire Department come from various walks of life, some are interested in pursuing firefighting careers, while others simply want to donate their time in service to the community. Volunteers must be Florida Firefighter II and EMT certified to qualify. The Village has approximately 18 Volunteer Firefighters, and is currently accepting applications (PDF).
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Firefighter, please contact District Chief Andrew Lezza via email, or you may also contact Deputy Chief Louis Giarrusso via email. We look forward to hearing from you!
