    Warning!!! This job is not for the faint of heart. This job is not for those who would turn their back to a person in need. This job position can only be filled by those who have a passion for helping others and the courage to do what is necessary in the face of danger.

    “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear; the brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.” – Meg Cabot

    Volunteer Firefighting is a rewarding and valuable way to serve your community. We promote a culture of excellence at Metter Fire-Rescue through dedication to our training, uncompromising core values, and leadership development. We encourage anyone interested in serving our community to look at the different capacities in which they can serve.

  • Volunteer Support Firefighter (Level 1)

    Section Photo

    Volunteer Support Firefighters provide an essential job duty. These individuals are responsible for equipment deployment, providing rehab to staff on scene, driving emergency apparatus, public safety events in the community, and other various assignments. These individuals will not participate in structural firefighting, but will fill a key support role instead. Level I firefighters may become registered with Georgia Firefighter Standards and Training.

  • Registered Volunteer Firefighter (Level 2)

    Section Photo

    Registered Volunteers must complete a required training course that includes a live fire portion of training. These personnel may participate in interior and exterior firefighting operations, drive apparatus, and operate pumps or various other equipment. Registered volunteers may complete their training at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center or meet the requirements through locally delivered classes. If you think you’ve got what it takes to succeed in this exciting career, please contact us for more information.

  • Rescue Specialist

    Section Photo

    We provide vehicle extrication services to Candler County and mutual aid rescue responses to all surrounding jurisdictions when requested. Extrication includes victim removal from vehicles involved in motor vehicle collisions, elevators, confined space locations, as well as farm machinery and equipment. Training is delivered locally for those wishing to obtain a certification in rescue and extric-tion through Metter Fire-Rescue and Georgia Emergency Management Agency GEMA). There are many assignments during these operations including the oper-tion of hydraulic tools (i.e. “Jaws of Life”), stabilization equipment, and air tools or perhaps establishing a landing zone for a medical helicopter transport. Find out what your role might be!

  • Public Safety Education

    Section Photo

    These personnel attend and instruct classes in the public about fire safety, evacuation plans, and other safety related topics. We present information to local businesses, Candler County Schools, civic groups, and churches regarding fire safety. We also teach extinguisher classes on the proper use of extinguishers. These individuals may also assist in installation of smoke detectors or consult with residents who may have a question about hazards in their home.

  • Hazardous Materials

    Section Photo

    These individuals receive specialized training in this specific discipline. We have Awareness, Operations, and Technician level personnel on staff. Our hazardous materials personnel, both career and volunteer, are attached to a regional response team that activates for emergencies in Candler County and the surrounding areas.

    “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin

    Metter Fire-Rescue delivers local training to volunteers on a weekly basis. Drills are conducted every Tuesday at 7 p.m. for approximately 2-3 hours. Fire Officers and volunteers alike participate in “hands on” training, classroom learning, and also teaching other personnel. Firefighters can also attend training at GPSTC to receive certification as a Fire Instructor.

    For more information on certification, registration requirements and testing please visit the websites for the Georgia Public Safety Training Center and the Georgia Fire Standards and Training Council.
