Benjamin Franklin is credited with starting the first Volunteer Fire Department in 1736 for the city of Philadelphia. Since then the tradition of the volunteer fire service flourished in the country. To this day over 70% of the fire departments in America are 100% volunteer with another 2% a mix of volunteer and paid firefighters. That is over 800,000 volunteer firefighters that come from all walks of life in this country. There is no greater or longer running expression of volunteerism in the United States than the volunteer fire service. Unfortunately over the last 20 years, the number of volunteers has dropped over 10%. You can make a difference.
