The Saegertown Volunteer Fire Department is actively recruiting both experienced and inexperienced individuals who wish to serve as a volunteer firefighter/EMT in the Saegertown area.
Becoming a volunteer for a fire department can be a very rewarding experience for anyone who is dedicated, hardworking, caring, and compassionate. It offers you the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment and have the chance to join in the camaraderie involved with a community organization.
