Did you know that that 70% of all firefighters in the country are volunteers ? Did you know that 100% of the men and women that serve as firefighters for Medina are volunteers? Did you know that they also respond to calls for emergency medicals, rescues and hazardous material situations?

The men and women of the Hamel fire Department, which serves 75% of Medina, are ordinary people from the local community. They have jobs, raise families and do all the other activities you do. However, when the call for help comes, these same people transform into firefighters/medical first responders and come together as a team to do extraordinary things! 

Bonded by a passion and a commitment to serve, they train, prepare and make ready to stand in harm’s way to protect the community … sacrificing their time, efforts and energy in the service of others. It’s not done for pay, recognition or notoriety...but rather for the personal satisfaction of helping someone in a time of need. Don’t be confused by the label “volunteer”... they train to the same level and face the same risks as full-time firefighters. They are the .4% of the population, fueled by the need to serve, that earn the title “Firefighter”!

Hamel Fire is always looking for new members. You don’t need special skills, you don’t need to be strong, you don’t need to be young … there is a role for everyone! Would you answer “YES” to any of these questions?

  • Do YOU want to do something important for the community?

  • Do YOU want to learn new skills?
  • Do YOU want to be part of a high-performing team?
  • Do YOU want to be part of the “.4% club”?
  • Do YOU want to have an impact?
If you answered YES to any of these, so, we have a great opportunity for you .... fill out an application and find out how you can help!
