AFD Volunteer Program
Volunteer Firefighters are a dedicated group of individuals who support the community and full time Firefighter/Paramedics and EMTs in their efforts in "Serving our Community, Saving Lives and Protecting Property" for the citizens of Anacortes and Western Skagit County.
The Department has vacancies for Volunteer Firefighters and accept applications year around. Firefighter academies are offered occasionally and you will be scheduled to attend one as soon as practical. If you can invest the time in your community, please submit an application to the Fire Department Administration Office at 1016 13th St, Anacortes. Your application will be evaluated and a physical agility test and interview will be administered to score your capacity to meet the demands. The Physical Agility Test may be waived if the volunteer applicant has a current CPAT certificate.
