Let Us Help You... Consider Volunteering.
Fire Fighters and all men and women that volunteer are essential to the safety and security of our local communities.
Our members are just like you...they are your neighbors and the members of the community. They donate their time and energy to be there when others need help. We welcome you to join our family and give back to your community. We need interior firefighters, exterior firefighters, medical personnel, and drivers. No experience is needed. We will provide all the training and education.
Over all, each fire fighter does 90 hours of training at the minimum in order to maintain proficiency in this job. On-line courses add up to another 4 hours of training.
Each interior fire fighter must complete the Fire Fighter 1 course which is 195 hours of training both classroom and hands-on in order to become a full fire fighter.
Pump Ops, Areal Ops, Truck Company Ops, VROL and EVOC make for a well-rounded and knowledgeable fire fighter.

What volunteers are saying about their experience.
Membership has made me a better person.The fire service as a whole has made me more disciplined, a better communicator and a team player.
The satisfaction of helping others, no comparison!
Being a part of the Honeoye Falls Fire Department has been eye opening. I am still in training but I have already seen how much goes on in the background. From the maintenance, preparedness, training, safety, getting out to a call as fast as you can, working as a team to make sure everyone is safe. It is incredible to see and be a part of.
When I meet new people and start talking about my experience volunteering for the Honeoye Falls fire department, I amaze them and myself how exciting, scary and rewarding it is. I am happy I decided to volunteer.
