Benefits of Membership

Our firefighters are the backbone of our department, and we want to help give back to them educationally and personally. Below are some of the ways we are able to accomplish this.

  • Affiliations with organizations who will help PLFD volunteers obtain their fire certifications
  • Departmental initial and refresher wildland training, as well as proctored arduous-level pack test
  • Alternating monthly department-wide medical and fire trainings, as well as multiple skill training sessions during volunteer shifts
  • Membership in the Palmer Lake Fire Association, giving members a say in special events and Association funds, as well as opportunity to apply for Association grants for education and equipment
  • Volunteer pension after 10 years of service
  • Annual holiday awards banquet
  • Personal growth in leadership, safety, and emergency readiness
  • Opportunity to gain experience and knowledge in the fire and emergency medical services fields
