Our membership is diverse, ranging from high school students to local business owners. No previous experience is required; we provide all your training. There is a volunteer position for everyone, even if you do not have a desire to fight fire or respond to emergency calls.
The requirements for membership include a background check, a physical, which is provided by The Somerset Volunteer Fire Department, and the successful completion of our application process including an interview with the Investigation committee.
If you live in our 911 call area, we sure could use your help.We currently have 3 classifications of membership.
1. "Active Firefighting"
For those that want a physical and mental challange, this category of membership does it all including actively fight fire and participate in the emergency response or specialty teams (SCUBA or Haz-Mat). This classification of membership requires the most training and work.
2. "Associate Membership"

3. "Junior Membership"
