Volunteers started Snohomish County Fire District 1 back in 1929, and they continue to be an essential part of the  services provided by South Snohomish County Fire & Rescue.

Volunteering with us often requires special training. It takes commitment and a willingness to give back to the community.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, and live within the boundaries of SSCFR, including the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, and Mountlake Terrace.

Volunteer Firefighters

Volunteer firefighters serve in non-emergency roles assisting staff in areas such as support at fire scenes, disaster response, public education, and community service. Volunteers must complete entrance requirements and testing through the National Testing Network. Tests include agility, aptitude, and personal history.

See the Volunteer Firefighters page.
