Hoodland Fire District relies on volunteers working side-by-side with career personnel to provide high quality emergency medical care, fire suppression and to the residents and visitors of the communities we serve.
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.
