Escambia County Fire Rescue is seeking men and women interested in serving as volunteer firefighters for the communities in both emergency response and non-emergency support positions. Volunteer firefighting has a long tradition in Escambia County with most of the volunteer fire departments being organized between the years 1940 to 1970. In 2000, Escambia County Fire Rescue was established to add career personnel to the fire protection ranks. The volunteer fire departments and ECFR were consolidated in 2008 to create a “combination fire department.” Today, volunteers and career personnel work together to provide emergency and non-emergency services in Escambia County.

Operational Members

The Department's main focus is to provide fire suppression, rescue and emergency medical services to the community at large.  Our Operational Members are on the front line providing these services as Fire Fighters and Medical First Responders.

Administrative/Support Members

  • We are in need of Administrative/Support Members with experience in the following:
  • Office skills
  • Recruitment activities

Volunteer firefighters operate and maintain the fire station’s firefighting equipment and keep the station ready to react to any emergency situation in the community it serves. In addition to their time spent at the station, volunteer firefighters are on call for emergency response 24 hours a day.

As a volunteer firefighter, you will receive training to manage a variety of emergencies: structure and wildland fires, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies and hazardous materials spills.
