[ARCHIVED] TVF&R is Recruiting Volunteers

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue is grateful for its dedicated cadre of volunteers, who aid us in our mission to create safer communities.

We are in the process of seeking more men and women who are willing to donate their time and serve their community as TVF&R volunteers. This exciting opportunity gives individuals a chance to be part of their fire district.

TVF&R offers two ways you can choose to serve your community:

  • Incident Support Volunteer: As an incident support volunteer, you would bring rehabilitation units to major incidents to provide TVF&R firefighters assistance with breathing apparatus, medical monitoring, and other support in a non-firefighting capacity. You would also participate in public education, attend parades, support community events and activities, and attend monthly drills.
  • Auxiliary Volunteer: As an auxiliary volunteer, you would play an active role in TVF&R’s public education program and attend community events. This is a non-emergency response role. You may work once or twice a week or even a few times each year, depending on your area of interest and commitment. You could also help restore and maintain TVF&R’s fleet of antique apparatus.

All volunteers must be 18 years old or older, have a high school diploma or an equivalent certificate, pass a criminal background check, have a valid Oregon driver’s license, and live within TVF&R’s service area. All volunteers must obtain CPR and automated external defibrillator training within six months, and incident support volunteers must also obtain emergency medical responder certification within 12 months.

Want to learn more? TVF&R is holding a Volunteer Interest Open House on Saturday, January 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at TVF&R's Command and Business Operation Center, 11945 SW 70th Ave., in Tigard.

For more information about TVF&R’s volunteer program or to apply to become a volunteer, visit and click on "volunteer opportunities." Applications will be accepted through February 6.
