FAQ about becoming a volunteer with AVFRD
18 is the minimum age to be a fully functional operational (firefighter/EMT) volunteer. We offer a junior volunteer program for 16-17 year olds (https://ashburnfirerescue.org/volunteer/junior/). For younger women and men, we also have an Explorer post (https://ashburnfirerescue.org/volunteer/explorers/). Administrative volunteers can join at age 16.
