Become a Member Today!
We are always looking for members of our community to become volunteer
firefighters and emergency medical personnel. Our community is dependent
on volunteer emergency responders, especially with our ever-increasing call
volume. We also need volunteers for other important jobs. When you think
about it, we at the Oaks Corners Volunteer Fire Company operate a business
dealing with the same issues faced by large corporations and small
businesses alike. Our duties, in addition to providing fire and emergency
medical response, include administration, personnel management, record
keeping, finance and budget management, fleet maintenance, insurance,
taxes, marketing, strategic planning, quality control, compliance with
governmental mandates, managing liability, facilities maintenance, fire
prevention and public education, and the list goes on. There are many different
types of membership that we offer, and remember

Active Membership   
The actual firefighters that respond to emergency calls are Active Members.
These men and women are both interior structural firefighters and support
firefighters. Support firefighters can drive fire apparatus, operate outside hose
lines, direct traffic, set up lights and generators, and perform other firefighting
tasks that do not involve actually going inside a burning building. At a
minimum, Active members must complete the Scene Support Operations
Class, and the Hazardous Materials Operations class within their first two
years of membership. Both classes are taught locally, and are provided at no
cost to the member. All Active Members must also complete a minimum of 8
hours of safety training annually, which is taught throughout the year at our

Active Medic Membership
People who want to provide emergency medical care, but do not want to
become a firefighter can join as an Active Medic Member. These members
respond to emergency medical calls and provide patient care until a
transporting ambulance can arrive on scene. Active medic members also
respond to fire scenes and can provide medical care to our firefighters. All
Active Medic Members must achieve a NYS certification of Certified First
Responder or higher within their first two years of membership. The classes
are held locally, and at no cost to the member.

Social Membership
Social membership is for the volunteer who does not want to respond to
emergency calls, but would like to volunteer their time for other important tasks.
Social members can attend department meetings, serve on committees, work
at fund raisers, serve as dispatchers, do work around the firehouse, serve on
our fire department auxiliary, and many other helpful tasks. There is no training
