Would You Like to Help?

The Pine Mountain Fire Department is an all-volunteer agency with a long history of service to the town and the community.

The department has people who volunteer as firefighters, people who volunteer as First Responders (including two Paramedics), and some who volunteer as part of the service company. We are also involved with an Explorer Post program, conducted as part of the Boy Scouts, and open to boy and girls at Harris County High School.

To volunteer with us, you must be of good moral character and willing to give of yourself to help others. You must have a valid driver’s license (except those in the Explorer program). You are subject to a background check and drug screen. You cannot have been convicted of a felony offense in the last five years.

Many of our firefighters have also been trained as First Responders and all of our members should be able to function in the service company role as needed.

Firefighter – Because this does involve actual firefighting and strenuous activity, to be a firefighter you must be in good physical condition. You must be at least 18 years old. You will be expected to attend the training sessions, which are held at 8:00 a.m. the second Saturday of each month and at 7:00 p.m. the fourth Thursday of each month. Plus, you will be expected to attend other departmental activities as often as you can. You must successfully complete the Module One Basic Firefighter class. This class is regularly taught at the Georgia Fire Academy. Local classes are also taught on a periodic basis. We encourage you to take other classes offered at the Georgia Fire Academy. You will also be expected to successfully complete a CPR/AED/First Aid class. At minimum, a valid Georgia Class C driver’s license is required to operate Squad 12. At minimum, a Georgia Class B non-commercial driver’s license is required to operate Quint 1201 or Engine 1202. Once you qualify, you will be offered a chance to enroll in the Georgia Firefighters Pension Plan.

First Responder – To be a First Responder you must be in good physical condition. You must be at least 18 years old. You will be expected to attend the same training sessions as the firefighters and other departmental activities as often as you can. At a minimum, you must complete the First Responder program as taught by the Harris County EMS. National certification is not required. At minimum, a valid Georgia Class C driver’s license is required to operate Squad 12. At minimum, a Georgia Class B non-commercial driver’s license is required to operate Quint 1201 or Engine 1202.

Service Company – Our service company volunteers, many of whom are also First Responders, provide rehab services for our firefighters at fire scenes, they provide traffic and crowd control. They coordinate with the American Red Cross and other service agencies as needed. Our service company volunteers are an integral part of our department. To be a part of the Service Company, you must at least 18 years old and in good physical condition. You will be expected to attend the same training sessions as the firefighters and other departmental activities as often as you can. You will be expected to successfully complete a CPR/AED/First Aid Class. At minimum, a valid Georgia Class C driver’s license is required to operate Squad 12.
