Fire / Rescue Recruitment & Retention

Careers & Volunteer Opportunities

Our local volunteer fire and rescue agencies are always on the lookout for energetic citizens who want to help their community and county. Likewise, our 2 largest municipalities, Salisbury and Kannapolis seek qualified individuals who would have interest in the fire service as a career. If you have an interest in either of these areas, please contact your local fire or rescue department for details.

Junior Firefighter Program

Many departments across the county also offer a Junior Firefighter Program that allows young adults under the age of 18 to participate and learn skills in a local fire department. Contact your local department for details and to find out if your department offers this program.
