Do I need previous training or experience?
No! Aetna Hose Hook and Ladder Company will provide the training that you need. If you bring a willingness to learn and a can-do attitude, we’ll provide the rest.
how old do i have to be to join?
To apply as a probationary member you must be at least 18 years old. Our Explorer Program is open to high schoolers who are at least 14 years old.
Do I get paid?
No, volunteers are not paid. You will, however, reap the rewards of serving your community and acquiring new skills within the fire service!
Do I have to respond every time there is a call?
Not at all! We understand that our members have lives outside of the firehouse – families, jobs, school, etc. However, most of our members who live within responding distance do choose to respond when they know their community needs them.
