The first thing to do to get involved is contact us via our contact page, call the station, or show up at one of the posted events on the schedule.  Its best to make contact with us before you show up so that you are aware of any last minute changes.  If you decide you want to become an active member you will need to accomplish the following:

1.  Attend two business meetings and accomplish an initial reading and then a secondary reading.  This will allow the associate membership to vote on a member.

2.  Next, acquire an application from either station 56 or 57 during a business meeting.  Complete your application (to include fingerprinting and notary) and then turn it back in to one of the Fire Chiefs.  This will initiate your background check.

3.  Once your background check is complete you can accomplish your physical.  All applicants must accomplish  a physical through the PG county designated medical facility.  Your Fire Chief will coordinate your appointment.  Once you complete your physical you will receive your county number, which identifies you as a first responder.  You will now be ready to accomplish any and all training courses.

If you want to start some of you training early you can accomplish NIMS 100 and 700 during your application process.  They are located here:
