Fire 20/20 is offering a free webinar on Wednesday, January 22 from 10-11:30am PST (7-8:30 ET) entitled United in Service: Building a Volunteer Department That's a Recruiting Magnet.
The number of volunteer firefighters has been declining while the mission of the fire service continues to expand and our communities become increasingly diverse. These three factors alone should propel us to build more inclusive and diverse departments.
During this webinar, Fire Chief Jona Olsson of Latir Fire Department and 2012 Volunteer Fire Chief of the Year and Deputy Fire Chief Jonathan Howard, Sr. of Bowie Volunteer Fire Department look at some of the current realities of the volunteer service, explore WHY inclusions and diversity are crucial to fulfilling our mission, and offer some tools for volunteer leaders to start building their departments as a "recruiting magnet."
