●    Safety Outreach for Seniors (SOS):

This program helps seniors in our community stay safe in their homes by showing
them how to prevent falls and fires. A background in social services,
inspections, caregiving and medical fields is helpful but not required.

●    Courier Service:
We need people who would enjoy delivering mail and other materials to our 5 Fire
Stations, City Hall and our Training Center, on a weekly basis. We supply the
vehicle, you supply safe driving skills.

●   Fire and Life Safety Education:
Public safety education is an essential component of our Fire Prevention mission, and we need Volunteers who have the skills and ability to teach important safety concepts to all ages, in collaboration with our Fire Prevention professionals.

●    Community Events:
Bend Fire is involved with many community events, along with the Bend Police Department,and we need people to help us staff our displays, including our new Community Engine.

●    Administration:
If you have a background in office work, computers, graphic design and web page design, and if you are looking for a way to support your community, we can use your help.

●    Emergency Incident Support:
Volunteers are called upon to drive our Rehab Bus to the scene of extended
emergency operations, to provide food, hydration, shelter and rest for firefighters
who are assigned to rehab.

The Bend Fire Dept. provides training, uniforms and everything you need to contribute. You provide your skills, enthusiasm and passion, along with some of your time. You will become a part of a positive, energetic and compassionate team that helps the community in many crucial ways.
