Become a Volunteer

Have you ever wanted to give back to your community? Have you ever wanted to help your neighbors as they experienced one of the worst days of their lives, but just wasn’t sure how? Have you ever witnessed a fire engine headed to a call and thought to yourself, “Wow! I’d love to do that!” If so, then you just may be the person we are looking for. The Eliot Fire Department (EFD) is looking for dedicated individuals to join our team by becoming a member of our volunteer fire department. Few opportunities in life can match the sense of pride that comes from knowing you are making a difference in the lives of others — something we experience frequently!

We, at the EFD, always seek people who have a strong desire to help others to join with us — people with pride and dedication to making the community safer and better. Because our work is so important, we make sure all our firefighters are properly trained and equipped; all you need to do is offer the time. If you really want to do something meaningful for your family, friends and neighbors, and are willing to take on challenging work, please consider becoming a member of the department.

The requirements for becoming a Eliot Firefighter are:

  • Be a current resident of the Town of Eliot
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Possess a valid Maine Driver’s License
  • Possess a high school diploma or equivalency
  • Have an acceptable driving record
  • Have no, or an acceptable criminal background
