Volunteers are in integral part of the fire service all over the world. Even today, many departments are manned solely with volunteers; everyday citizens who have made the decision to make a difference in their communities by performing life and property saving duties.

Hoodland Fire District #74 is a combination department, meaning that we are comprised of both career and volunteer staff who respond to fire and medical emergencies.

All volunteers receive a high level of training in not only fire fighting, but also in emergency medical care, driver awareness/apparatus operations, hazardous materials, procedures, radio communications, and basic report writing.

Drills are a vital part of your initial training and continuing skill maintenance. Our drills are usually two hours, once a week, on Wednesday nights.
