Volunteer Recruitment

The Charlton County Fire Rescue Department is continuously looking for motivated and dedicated individuals to help us serve Charlton County and provide the services needed to protect and educate our community.

We will provide the training and the equipment all we ask is you provide the time.

Do you have a desire to help those in need and have the time to dedicate to making our community safer for everyone?

The 1st step is to apply to be a member.
An application can be picked up at any Fire Station or click the link :

Volunteer Application

Once the application is complete and you have acquired the background check as required; bring the application and receipt for the background check to:
Chief Terry Johnson at  Folkston/Homeland  Station 1 at 97 Railroad Dr., Folkston Georgia to be reviewed.

Once you pass the reference check and background check you will be invited to an assessment.  No worries here, just a way to see how we can help you develop into the best firefighter you can be.

1. Written Assessment: All material for firefighter training has a needed reading comprehension level and we need to know if a mentor will be necessary.

2. Physical Assessment:  Basic skills to assess your ability to manipulate firefighting equipment and to see if you have the physical capabilities to perform the work.

3. Peer Interview:  This is a board of your potential peers that will assess your answers to questions and how you communicate with others. 

When this is done and you are selected we will contact you for the next steps.
