Join our Team

Have you ever thought about volunteering in your community as a firefighter or EMS personnel?  We are looking for people who are prepared to be prepared! Join us and become involved in our community!

If you're looking for an opportunity to make your community a safer place to live, Philomath Fire & Rescue would like to hear from you.  Did you know that we rely on volunteers to respond to emergencies in our Fire District?  We are especially interested in finding willing, capable volunteers in the areas served by our substations. We are in need of volunteers in the Wren area and in the Inavale area. If you live south of Airport Road or west of Wren hill, you can make a huge difference in your neighborhood.

We are looking for people to train for medical and fire emergency response.  Philomath Fire & Rescue provides the training and equipment necessary to safely and effectively respond to the many types of emergency calls in our fire district. 

We would be glad to answer any questions you have.  You could become part of the solution to a safer community!  Feel free to stop by, call us at 541.360.0030, or send an email:

We will provide you with the training and equipment to make a real difference!

Fill out the application below or give us a call with your questions.  We'd love to add you to our team!   


Volunteer Firefighters are members of the Philomath Fire & Rescue community who act to protect the life and property of our community members from fire and other emergencies though fire suppression and emergency response. If certified, Volunteer Firefighters may act in EMS roles for the District.

Volunteer Medical Responders are community members who have medical certification through the Oregon Health Authority and provide medical services to protect the members of our community. They act in a strictly non-firefighting role.

Resident Volunteers act as both firefighter and EMS responders and live at one of the District stations. In exchange for training, experience, and housing, they may participate in our tuition reimbursement program.

Community Volunteers/Sirens are members who live outside of the Philomath Fire & Rescue District or are interested solely in a support role for the District. These volunteers perform tasks to support District personnel such as coordinating events for the District or providing rehabilitation support for responders on-scene.
