MHPD Volunteers

The Mountain Home Fire Department currently has a roster of 10 paid per call "volunteer" firefighters. The volunteers are a major part of the department, and work side by side the career guys at major incidents inside the city and assist with fire calls outside of the city along with off-duty personnel. We have a joint training meeting, career/volunteer, twice a month so the volunteers are up to date with any new procedures in the department, and to get familiar with new equipment.
