Hi everyone,
I’m a volunteer firefighter with the Country Fire Authority in Victoria, Australia. My brigade is in a small south-west coast town and we attend bushfires (wildfires) as well structure fires, Hazmat, MVA’s and other incidents.
You can read about some of our summer bushfire training at

Good Day,
I’m Stephen Eric P. Chua, a member of De Castro Subdivision Homeowners & Neighborhood Assn. Peace & Order Council, Brgy. Paso De Blas/ Brgy. Mapulang Lupa, Valenzuela City, Philippines headed by Mr. Graciano C. Carreon (DCSHNA) President, and Engr. Norlito R. Rollan, II (DCSNHA) Peace & Order Council Chairman.
Our peace & order group all non-paid volunteers from all walks of life, would like to inquire regarding on how we could obtain request donations of old, used, 2nd hand fire helmets, turn out coats & pants, hoods, gloves, fire boots, that are not in use anymore and for disposal from your kind organization. That we would put into good use in voluntary service to fight fires and respond to emergency/ disaster & Calamity calls not only in Valenzuela City, but for the rest of Metro Manila and nearby provinces as the need arises for FREE.
Our volunteer group would like to expand our voluntary services as a Fire & Rescue Volunteer Group, and maintain our advocacy to help save lives & properties, and to help those others in need.
We do hope that you could help us in our goal and mission, and hope to hear from you soon. Thank you and God Bless.
Respectfully yours;
Stephen Eric P. Chua

Retired firefighter and first responder in Michigan. Good to see a sight dedicated to the volunteer. Here in Michigan, the training, tests and expectations are the same for volunteers as full-time paid. But there has always been a divide between those who serve full time and those who respond when called. Same job, same responsibilities, but still the stigma. Hope to see great things from this site!
There wasn't much difference when at the Michigan Fire Fighters Memorial, we said goodby to a fellow firefighter from our neighbor department. A death fighting fire is still a death! The sacrifice is still the same.
