Why Become an Abington Township VOLUNTEER?
There’s no better feeling than saving someone’s life or property.
There’s no sense of belonging as strong as fulfilling your role on a highly skilled team.
There’s nothing as exciting as the adrenaline rush of gearing up, riding toward the scene with lights and sirens blaring, and safely battling the smoke and flames or getting someone involved in an accident to safety.
And there’s no single reason why our members volunteer. Some love the excitement. Others want to give back. They all have one thing in common, though: They are all a vital part of the community, whether they fight fires or help around the station.
If you have the drive to volunteer in any capacity, here is just a little of what you will get back in return:
- The satisfaction that comes with knowing you are an important part of keeping your family and friends safe.
- Free training and the development of new skills that can help in all facets of your life and even prepare you for a possible new career.
- A sense of belonging by working as a team and building lasting relationships.
- Satisfaction from your commitment to serving your community in a worthwhile organization.
