A Resident Operational Volunteer is a person who serves AVFRD and the community in a volunteer capacity as a “residential” or “live-in” operational member – firefighter or EMT. Resident Operational Volunteers must cover three duty shifts per week from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., in addition to other duties as assigned. In return, the department provides temporary living accommodations at no cost.
Resident Operational Volunteers must:
- be at least 18 years old
- meet minimum training and certification standards
- employed full time (at least 36 hours per week), or full-time college students (at least 12 credit hours per term), or employed part-time while attending school part-time (at least 18 hours of work and 6 credit hours per term)
Our newly built Station 6 includes a Live-In Suite, including bedrooms, living room, and private bathroom for our live-in members.
