We are looking for people just like you.


Join your neighbors in being part of something bigger, and make a connection with your community.

The Shelburne Fire Department – and the Town of Shelburne – relies upon volunteers to answer the call to serve.

The Process

Joining the department starts with an application.

After applying, you’ll undergo an interview, which is also an opportunity to ask questions.

At the first Department meeting after the interview, applicants are presented to members, and a one-month waiting period begins. During that time, you’re welcome to attend training and begin meeting members. At the next monthly meeting, your application will be voted on and, if approved, a six month probationary period begins (though timing varies). At the end of the probationary period, another vote is taken for a status change to full membership.
