Have you ever wanted to give back to your community but didn't know how? Do you like helping others? Do you like being part of a team to accomplish things? If so, we have a place for you!!!! There is no better feeling than to help a friend, neighbor, or even a complete stranger in their time of need. The Cherokee Creek Volunteer Fire Department is constantly seeking qualified and trustworthy individuals to join our team.

While we are seeking firefighters you can also join to be strictly a Medical First Responder, Driver / Engineer, Support (bringing drinks and refreshments to fire scenes among other things. See below for requirements to join.
