Thank you for your interest in the

Walton Fire Protection District 

The Volunteer Firefighter

Volunteer Firefighters are a breed unto themselves
Whoever heard of a person who is willing to be on a twenty-four duty without pay for the dubious privilege or protecting their neighbor's property
Whoever heard of someone who will dash from their desk and ride a fire truck to a scene of the alarm ruining their suit, neglecting their business, risking their life and exhausting themselves physically, not for money, but because they believe in serving their community
Whoever heard of a person who will give up watching their favorite television show, postpone some reading or some "do-it-yourself" house chores they have been planning plus sacrificing their evenings with their family just to attend a meeting where they learn how to function as a volunteer servant in behalf of their fellow man
Whoever heard  (in this day and age) of a person who is crazy enough to be worrying about any one else
Well, if you don't know the answer to these questions join your local fire department and become a volunteer
