THE INVISIBLE VOLUNTEER

Daily DRAWN BY FIRE – The Invisible Volunteer

I’m celebrating the first day of October, my favorite month, with a scary cartoon. Well, maybe mildly disturbing would best describe it, but the message behind it should be terrifying for small communities. The volunteer spirit may still be strong in America, but that spirit is waning in the volunteer fire service where numbers are dwindling and younger bodies are not walking in the door (or walking back out after a few years). I have heard that some regions are still holding their own, but that’s not the case for most of the lower 48. Wish I had an answer instead of a parody cartoon stating the obvious, but that’s where smarter folks than me will step up and move forward.

If your Dept have solved the recruiting and retention problem, please share your story here so others may be able to duplicate it.
