Fire Corps

What is Fire Corps?
- Fire Corps is part of the Department of Homeland Security Citizen Corps Program and a companion to the CERT Program (Community Emergency Response Teams)
- Eastside Fire Corps is managed and operated by Eastside Fire & Rescue 

Our Mission:
- Attract and engage passionate volunteers from within our service area and adjacent communities
- By drawing on a larger pool of volunteers we can gain from their experience and best practices
- By providing area-wide training and exercises we will be better prepared to interoperate with each other
- Build a larger resource of volunteers and a “bench” of leaders to ensure stability and future growth 

Our Priorities:
- Unified commitment
- Engage and serve our community
- Clearly defined roles, responsibilities and reporting structure
- Encourage personal development and skills training
- Recruitment, recognition, retention
- Provide a personally satisfying experience to every volunteer
