Fire & Rescue: Recruitment & Retention

Careers & Volunteer Opportunities

Our local volunteer fire and rescue agencies are always on the lookout for energetic citizens who want to help their community and county. Likewise, our two largest municipalities, Salisbury and Kannapolis seek qualified individuals who would have interest in the fire service as a career. If you have an interest in either of these areas, please contact your local fire or rescue department for details.

Junior Firefighter Program

Many departments across the county also offer a Junior Firefighter Program that allows young adults under the age of 18 to participate and learn skills in a local fire department. Contact your local department for details and to find out if your department offers this program.
