Orangeville Fire will be hosting two upcoming information sessions for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter with the local department.

“Becoming a volunteer firefighter is very rewarding,” said Orangeville Fire Chief Ronald Morden. “Giving back to the community, staying active, making new friends and being part of the ‘fire family’ are just a few benefits. I strongly encourage you to come to one of our information sessions, even if it’s just to learn more about the role.”

Volunteer firefighters are made up of Orangeville residents who are committed to protecting their community through hands-on work as a part of Orangeville Fire’s team.

The 2022 Volunteer Recruitment Information Sessions will be held at the Orangeville Fire Station at 10 Dawson Road.

Session 1: November 9 at 7 p.m.
Session 2: November 10 at 7 p.m.
