By MSFA Committee Chair Joseph Chornock
November 15, 2013

The Why I Chose Fire: Next Generation VOLUNTEER video informs, inspires and motivates qualified, inclusive, diverse, and safety-conscious Generation Y, ages 15-25 to join the fire/emergency medical services.

Why I Chose Fire: Next Generation features inspirational interviews with diverse first responders about why they love volunteering and what inspired them to get involved in the fire/EMS services. The videos articulate what potential volunteer firefighters need to know to be successful today and in the future.

Why I Chose Fire: Next Generation is easily integrated into your recruitment campaign: on your website, social media pages, on local cable access, and in presentations at schools at community events.

For information about a customized version for your department or organization please contact or call us at 360-627-8663.

The Why I Chose Fire: Next Generation videos were made possible by a grant from the Motorola and sponsored by: Scott, Tyco and PBI
