How To Volunteer
Thank you for considering the Northport Volunteer Fire Department and serving your community. Our volunteers are instrumental to how we deliver our service to the public during what can be considered the “worst day of their life” – an emergency. We depend on our volunteer firefighters and EMT's with our lives and that is why it is our utmost concern that you consider your volunteer service “seriously.” Due to the long and unpredictable hours required to be a member of this organization, we ask that your family support your efforts. So please take the time to discuss your decision with them.
An application to be a volunteer member can be obtained from our department secretary at Headquarters, 204 Main Street, 631-261-7504. You can come by the fire house and pick one up in person. Two times each year (December and June) Northport Fire department processes applications to replenish our volunteer ranks. Applications must be submitted no later than February 28 or September 31. Upon receiving your completed application, we will review it and contact your references. You will also be subject to a criminal investigation through the police department. Then when the time comes to fill our vacant volunteer ranks, you will be notified whether you are eligible to proceed in the volunteer membership process. These procedures take time, so please be patient. Once again, thank you for your interest in volunteering!
