Do you have what it takes to be a Shelton volunteer firefighter?

The Shelton Fire Department is looking for new volunteers. The department is an organization that is made up of 100% volunteers.

Volunteer firefighters are able to become a first responder to help those in the community by providing fire prevention, fire suppression, search and rescue, and related assistance. People must be at least 16 years of age to join.

With training, volunteer firefighters utilize their skills to help improve the services provided by Shelton’s four volunteer fire companies — Echo Hose, Huntington, Pine Rock Park and White Hills.
