Featured Resource: Guide for Family Members of Volunteer Firefighters

When an individual joins the volunteer fire service the entire family is affected. The NVFC has released a guide to help spouses, children, parents, siblings, and significant others of firefighters navigate the lifestyle changes that come with having a volunteer in the family. The guide introduces family members to the basics of firefighter life, provides guidance for keeping family relationships strong and being part of the fire department family, and contains an array of tips and resources to help first responder families adjust to this lifestyle.
