Volunteer Firefighter / EMT Opportunities

The Buena Vista VFC is always looking to increase our membership to better serve the community. To become a firefighter you must be at least 18 years old and in good health. Junior firefighter opportunities exist for those 14 to 17 years old, with parental consent. Those wishing to become an EMT must be at least 16 years old at the start of class.
Regardless if you have previous public service training or are completely new to the fire service, we would love to have you as part of our team! Training is paid for by the department, and there are several opportunities to complete essential firefighter/ EMT training that can accommodate most schedules. Gear is also provided at no cost to the member. 
If you would like to join our team, just fill out the form below and we'll get in contact with you soon! If you have any other questions for free to contact us at We look forward to hearing from you!
