The Moorestown Fire Department is seeking volunteers. The department has a new tagline “Become Moore: Professional Volunteers, Everyday People" and they are encouraging residents and potential volunteers to visit their website: http://www.MoorestownFire.org/. The website offers more information about the department’s background and history, ways to volunteer and why to volunteer. While on the website, those who are interested are encouraged to fill out an inquiry form to begin the application process to ultimately becoming a member.
Moorestown primarily needs volunteers ready to help fight fires, but there’s also opportunities to help in other ways. The department is looking for fire police as well as junior auxiliary members. No prior experience is necessary, and training and equipment are provided for free.
“We are a well-trained group of men and women,” said Chesner. “We are very appreciative of our dedicated volunteer firefighters and the time that they give protecting the citizens of Moorestown.”
The following opportunities are available:
Volunteer Firefighter: Learn how to respond to emergencies, help save lives and protect property. We’ll teach you how to position ladders, advance hose lines and other important skills. Training and equipment are free, and you must be 18 years old to volunteer. (This requires Firefighter 1 certification from the state of New Jersey.)
Fire Police: Help ensure the safety of firefighters on the fire scene, direct traffic and provide crowd control at the scene.
Junior Auxiliary: A Junior Auxiliary member can join the department at 16 years of age and learn some basic firefighting skills and respond to various incidents before attending the Fire Academy at age 18.
RCBC Co-Op Membership: The Moorestown Fire Department and Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) have partnered to help increase membership in the fire department, foster education and provide tuition incentives.
Moorestown Fire Department has hired the services of The Communication Solutions Group (CSG), a public relations and marketing firm responsible for running volunteer recruitment and retention campaigns in Deptford, West Deptford, Willingboro, Westville and other fire departments throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The company successfully ran numerous recruitment and retention campaigns for fire and rescue companies in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
