Bullhead City Fire Department Seeks Community Assistance

Thursday, 15 July 2010

From West Coast 911

Since September 11th, fire and emergency service departments all across the nation are struggling with increasing demands for service coupled with reduced funding. In order to respond to these increasing demands and provide more services to the community, the Bullhead City Fire Department has established a Fire Corps program and is seeking volunteers to help.

Fire Corps creates opportunities for citizens to give back to their community by providing non-emergency assistance to their local fire/EMS department.

From creating websites to maintaining vehicles, promoting life safety education or offering administrative assistance, you can help your community become safer and better prepared for natural disasters, terrorist threats and other emergencies.

Fire Corps, a department of Home Land Security’s Citizen Corps program, is a national grassroots effort to increase the capacity of volunteer, career and combination fire and EMS departments through the use of community volunteers.

Fire Corps provides resources for departments to utilize volunteers in non-emergency roles so they can develop, implement and sustain programs and services that will help their department meet the needs of their community.

For more information or to become a Fire Corps volunteer, contact Fire Marshal Jim Dykens at 928-754-2001 ext 4222 or via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
