About Fire Corps

The Fire Corps Program is a nationally recognized volunteer program administered locally by the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District. Fire Corps volunteers are assigned a wide range of duties within the various Divisions of the Fire District and are supervised by Division coordinators who oversee their responsibilities. Volunteers are expected to properly learn and conduct tasks that will support and augment Fire District staff on a day-to-day basis and potentially during emergency incidents or natural disasters. This allows full time personnel to focus on operations and training while at the same time increasing capacity for large scale responses and services.

The main focus areas of the Fire Corps program are emergency incident support, public education and outreach, fire prevention and community risk reduction, and administrative support. Some examples of duties include:

✅ Conducting rehab operations✅ Community events✅ Red Flag Warning Patrol
✅ Videography or photography✅ Evacuation shelter support✅ Smoke alarm distribution
✅ Ice Patrol✅ Clerical or office duties✅ Transport and Logistics
✅ Educational programs✅ Field assignments✅ Social Media/Graphic Design

The rewards of volunteering are great. Those in Fire Corps have the opportunity to use their knowledge, skills and abilities to be a part of our mission to protect the public and promote safety throughout the County.
