Why Volunteer

While 100% of Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Company members cite “helping the community” as their main reason for volunteering, here are many other benefits to joining us. They include:

  • Receive valuable training and gear at no cost to you.
  • Pay per call stipends.
  • LOSAP: This financial incentive program rewards firefighters and fire police for years of volunteer service.
  • Join a firefighting family that has your back in good times and bad.
  • Interact with the community on calls and at events.
  • Use the fire company hall for free.
  • Learn skills transferable in emergency services careers.
  • Turn your “summer at the beach” into a meaningful, lifesaving experience
