District 2 VFD is looking for volunteers!
Support Your Local Fire Department!
We are glad that you are interested in joining the Brazos County District 2 Volunteer Fire Department. We are a proud, professional and progressive fire department and we work hard for what we have. Whether you want to become a firefighter or volunteer in some other capacity, we need you!
We have all the apparatus and equipment of a city fire department, but along with it comes a sacrifice… fire calls at 3 AM, missed dinners, and a very hostile working environment. A fire scene is quite possibly the most hostile working environment known to man. In terms of physical exertion, fifteen minutes of actual firefighting is equivalent to 8 hours on a construction site. You will be wearing almost 75 extra pounds of clothing and other gear which limits your mobility. You will get wet, dirty, hot, cold, tired, risk possible exposure to dangerous chemicals, atmospheres, and body fluids. You may even experience people who will curse at you or threaten you and it is likely that, from time to time, you will see things that will turn your stomach. All of this is not meant to scare you; it’s meant to give you a small taste of reality. On the other hand, if you decide that this sounds exciting to you, join the department and you will be part of an international brotherhood and sisterhood… a brotherhood and sisterhood like no other. No matter where you go, once a firefighter, always a firefighter. People will look up to you. We treat each other like family. If you need something, let one of us know and we’ll do everything we can to help you. Yes, you get to work in the worst environment known to man, but you also become part of the best family there is.
The District 2 Volunteer Fire Department offers a very highly respected fire training program that will prepare you for a firefighting career in the volunteer or career fire service. Training is designed to meet the needs of community members who are full-time workers, whether they have any Fire/EMS experience or not, and within a short time, you can be responding for D2VFD serving NE Brazos County as an emergency responder! Upon successful completion of a nationally approved firefighter certification program, members are encouraged to take additional specialty classes applicable to our operations that interest them. Such classes include vehicle rescue, rope rescue, advanced hazardous materials operations and advanced firefighter operations.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to consider joining our fire department and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions. We would be happy to schedule a personal meeting to discuss what options are available to you as a member of our team
If you are interested in joining our department contact Training Coordinator Rick Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rick will explain our application, background check, and probationary processes.
