Join Our Volunteer Family

Do you want to be a part of a great family that makes an enormous difference in their community every single day? Volunteers with the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department (RHVFD) have been doing just that for over a century! We would love to include you as a member of this family who work very hard at continuing such an important and rewarding tradition.

Picture this…

What is it like to be a Firefighter?

You can hear it ahead of you. It's the roar of an angry animal let loose. You can feel it in your gut as you crawl closer down the hall with your partner and your hose line. As you pop open the door, heat-sound-vibration almost pushes you back out.

You suddenly realize you're grinning like crazy as you open the nozzle and drown the fire, saving someone's home. It's an intense, wild, and satisfying experience knowing you were part of a crew that saved someone's home, property or even their life.

But what about being an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)?

You arrive at the scene, it's a major car accident. As soon as you get out of the ambulance you can hear terrified cries. They're in pain, scared, and confused. You grab your gear and you and your partners head toward the sounds. Someone reaches out to you and you take their hand to comfort them.

As you talk to them, give them ease, you help take care of their injuries and get them on their way to the hospital. When you're ready to hand them over to the nurses and doctors, they reach out again and thank you for saving them! As you walk away, you feel like you're on cloud nine because you just made a life-saving difference for someone.

But I can't run into fires, no way! And forget about all that medical stuff. What can I do?

Well, let the planning and organizing begin! Okay, who wants to take on the Dinner with Santa event? We need people to help organize the decorations, get the food planned, and don't forget those White House Ornaments! Merle, “What about getting people signed up for serving the food, making sure things get cleaned up after?” Janet, “Do we have a budget yet?” Michael chimes in, “I can contact the President and see what our budget is.” Great, Jane said she would make some calls about the food. Richard, “I can create sign-up sheets for serving and cleanup.” Excellent! Holly, you did a fantastic job last year with decorations, can you do it again? Holly, “Sure.” Okay, this is great! Let's touch base in about a week and see where we are. We rock!

So, what does it all mean?

There are so many ways you can help! Any member can plan and support our community events, as well as take on official roles like Treasurer, Secretary, or even be the President (wouldn't that be awesome?)! Being a Firefighter and EMT are life-saving opportunities. But we also need people who would love to take on behind the scenes roles that help keep our family together and running like a well-oiled machine.

In simple words, you will gain a tremendous satisfaction in knowing that you are helping your friends, family and neighbors at their most difficult and stressful times in their lives, or by helping to raise funds in building a great Fire Rescue facility and keep it operational. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that YOU helped make a difference in your community and having that sense of belonging to a group of like-minded folks, it makes it all worthwhile. So please come join us. Make a difference, help your neighbors, and have a TON of fun doing it!
