Biggest need is EMS volunteers
SJFD currently has a need for additional volunteers to assist in several areas of the department as well as serve on an important committee that is dedicated to protecting homes from wildfires. While the department has a full compliment of Fire Police volunteers, SJFD wants to recruit additional EMS personnel. EMS crews already have responded to more than 100 calls this year, including 19 transports to the hospital. The numbers continue to reflect an increase in call volume as EMS received more than 800 calls last year and are on a similar pace again this year.
