The State of the Volunteer Fire Service Report

This report provides a solutions-based framework that offers combination and volunteer departments a means to improve their leaderships’ ability to recruit, retain and manage the volunteers of the future.

This report was developed from a National Summit that brought together many national fire service interests groups to think in a new and open way about the future of the volunteer fire service and how we can get to that future.
