We need your help! As one of two volunteer fire departments serving Midland County we need firefighters AND office/clerical staff. From paperwork to bookwork; fundraising to meeting notes/recording; event planning to budgeting. We operate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity; like any non-profit, we are stretched for resources and people are our most valuable asset. You do not have to be a firefighter to be of help, and you do not have to be trained (we will train you, at no cost to you) if you desire to be a firefighter.
We're sure you have more questions, contact us today so we can show you all that Northeast VFD has to offer. We are happy to meet you in person, introduce you to members, and offer a tour of the fire station and our apparatus.
Join as a firefighter,
office staff or both!
All Northeast VFD staff are fully volunteer. They give their time to the department when they can. How frequently and when you volunteer are up to you. Make no mistake - our members stay busy. They lead full lives and work full-time jobs, many with families and extensive obligations outside the fire department. At NEVFD though, you have the unique opportunity to serve the Midland community without compromising your other obligations. Generations before have served in the same way, and generations to come are counting on your service.
Must be 18 years of age
Must live or work in Midland County or a reasonable distance from the NEVFD response district
Must pass a background check
Learning NEVFD's Standard Operating Guidelines
All members go through a three-month probationary period where they are asked to attend our monthly meetings and trainings. You will join other probationary members through the process of advancing your skills and knowledge of the fire service. Your probationary curriculum is a structured course we developed based on widely accepted best-practices; State of Texas firefighter certification guidelines.
What You'll Learn & Do
Voted Into Full Membership
Upon a vote in favor by the full membership, you will immediately move from Probationary status to full Membership. Congratulations! At this point you are now a full member and part of a long history of brotherhood. You will have the same rights and responsibilities as the rest of the full membership. As a Member, you will now be able to vote on all matters before the full membership, continue to go on calls, and qualify for increasing levels of responsibility. We hold elections for officers yearly, with the Chief's position filled every two years by election.
