Facebook Live: Fire Service Recruitment Solutions During COVID-19 and Beyond

March 25, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT


Many fire and EMS departments use National Volunteer Week in April to engage with their communities and recruit new volunteers. However, with COVID-19-related considerations making traditional recruitment methods difficult, how can departments take advantage of this annual event while still prioritizing the health and wellbeing of their members and the public? Also, what can departments do to help bolster recruitment as vaccines become more available and we look beyond the pandemic? Join the NVFC director from Massachusetts Joe Maruca, vice president of strategic recruitment & retention services at First Arriving Tiger Schmittendorf, and Chief Brandon Fletcher of the Gilt Edge (TN) Volunteer Fire Department on March 24 at 4pm ET for a Facebook Live discussion on the challenges posed to recruitment by the pandemic and strategies for overcoming them.

This event is sponsored by First Arriving, the leading marketing company powering success for volunteer fire, rescue, and EMS departments. Learn more at www.firstarriving.com.
