Interested in Joining

Upper Hominy Volunteer Fire & Rescue


Ever since the department was founded in 1959 we have seen nothing but growth in the Upper Hominy and Candler areas.  This growth in the community has resulted in additional needs from the department where we are responsible for proving emergency services including fire protection, first responder advanced medical services, as well as a variety or rescue services.  These additional needs have required us to expand out staffing model from where it was at one time volunteer only to what is now a combination department where we have fulltime staff on duty 24/7 at both of our current stations and also rely on volunteers to help fill in those gaps at the station and on emergency calls. 


Ever thought of volunteering your time by helping your community in times of need?  UHFD is always looking for capable volunteers to help fill those needs.  We have an open application process and accept those that are currently trained as well as those that aren’t but are willing to take the necessary training to become an asset to the department.  The skills you will learn will here not only will allow you to help your community but will assist you in your everyday life as well.


Interested in volunteering your time but not on the front line, well we can use you too.  We also have a FD Auxiliary that assists with fundraisers, supplying meals and drinks during large scale events, as well as special events around the department.  The auxiliary has a place for about anyone for about any age group whether you like to cook, have good organizational/planning skills, crafty, and many more.


If you are interested in joining as a Volunteer or as an Auxiliary member please print and fill out the application below and drop it off by the station.  Volunteers and those interested are encouraged to attend our monthly business meetings which are held on the first Monday of each month at 7pm.  Those interested in the Auxiliary are encouraged to attend the monthly Auxiliary meeting which it held the fourth Tuesday or each month at 7pm.  All meeting are held at our main headquarters at 1795 Pisgah Hwy in Candler.


Full-time as well as part-time positions are filled as needed are if you are interested feel free to contact us directly or print and fill out the application and additional documentation then drop it by our main headquarters during normal administration business hours of Mon-Fri 8am-4pm.  Applications will remain on file for a time of one year if any positions become available.  We strive to post available position postings on our website as well as social media outlets.
