How to Become a Spicewood VFD-EMS Volunteer . . .
Becoming a member of the Spicewood VFD-EMS is an easy, four step process and is open to anyone who has attained the age of 18 years and who is in good physical condition:
Submit a membership application (download here)
Undergo a criminal background check
Attend two consecutive department business meetings (held the second Tuesday of each month)
Receive a favorable vote of members present at any regular business meeting
Once you become a member, you can choose what you want to and are capable of doing. You might choose to train to fight structure fires in full bunker gear, or drive a 4WD brush truck across burning ranch land. But not all members actively fight fires – you might choose to train to receive EMS certification and provide pre-hospital medical care to members of the community in need of emergency medical services. Or you might choose to provide administrative assistance in the office, or help to keep our tenders and pumpers full of water, or bring needed supplies to firefighters in the field.
As a benefit, the department provides workmen's compensation insurance for all members, along with certain paid vaccinations and prepaid helicopter medivac coverage for you and your family members. All protective clothing and safety equipment is provided by the Department. Department members enjoy the immunity protection provided by law for volunteer firefighters and emergency medical service providers, and we also carry other insurance as required by our ESD partners.
