NPB Fire Rescue Volunteer Program
Volunteer Firefighters have been an integral part of the 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. Our volunteers serve alongside career personnel, and engage in firefighting and other duties depending upon their certification.
The purpose of the volunteer program is to provide real life experience and on-the-job training along with day-to-day operation opportunities for individuals who are actively looking for a career in the fire service.
The volunteer program with North Palm Beach provides a worthwhile experience to the community by assisting the Village's paid certified firefighters and paramedics in the prevention, control and suppression of structural fires and in response to medical emergencies and any other type of disaster.
The program provides growth and professional development to the participants. New recruits can develop their knowledge, skills, abilities and qualifications necessary for when they become employed by a fire department.
