    Firefighter Recruitment and Retention

    What is the Volunteer Fire Fighter Recruitment and Retention Tool?

    Without a doubt, human resources, particularly volunteers, are the fire service’s most valuable assets. Time is also valuable. Unfortunately, both have limits. There are so many demands on time within a volunteer fire department that the leadership may not have enough of it to focus on maintaining a solid volunteer recruitment and retention program. This can impact other important areas like having enough volunteers who will enjoy and continue to do the job well.

    The goal of providing this toolkit is to give Municipal Fire Chiefs and community leaders a set of resources to simplify and guide their efforts in recruiting and retaining volunteers for delivering emergency services to their citizens. In return, Northwest Territories (NWT) communities will have the services of men and women who will derive great satisfaction in protecting their family and friends from harm. As our communities grow, the complexity and frequency of providing these services will increase, as will the necessity to obtain and keep competent and healthy numbers of volunteers. We hope that this toolkit will support and foster NWT communities in making these efforts a reality.
