Boiling Springs Fire District

Proud to be an ISO Class 1 Rated Fire Department

Serving the Community

Are you interested in helping others through participation in today's fire service?

The Boiling Springs Fire District has opportunities available for those who would like to lend a helping hand.  We are always looking for volunteers to assist in a variety of different functions. From working along side the suppression forces responding to emergencies and fighting fire to support roles that may vary from clerical work and assisting with special projects to non-firefighting on-scene support as part of the On-scene Rehabilitation Unit.

The fire district also has paid positions that occasionally become vacant.  These positions are most typically among the suppression force and are principally firefighter positions.

All personnel of the Boiling Springs Fire District that are active interior structural firefighters must successfully pass annual medical physicals, drug screenings, and annual job related physical agility testing to stay active whether paid or volunteer.  An example of typical  firefighter duties is provided below.

Persons interested in volunteering in non-suppression activities are subject to passing annual medical evaluations, drug testing, driving record checks, and criminal history background checks.
