Strengthen Yourself and Your Community
Whether it is a fire or medical emergency, our volunteer responders truly make a difference. You can make a difference by becoming a volunteer with the North Mason Regional Fire Authority. Our volunteers play a vital role in the Fire Authority, by providing lifesaving actions when seconds count and helping to reduce emergency response times.
Our volunteers receive a variety of benefits for donating their time. Not only do they have the opportunity to assist on actual emergency calls, but they are provided with an array of training opportunities at no cost to them. Our volunteers also participate in numerous North Mason community events, including pancake feeds, Tahuya Day, Santa Sleigh, Safety Days at our local schools and the Taste of Hood Canal to name a few. Being a volunteer for the Fire Authority is a rewarding experience.
