is a privilege.

Becoming a Member

Your time is a precious commodity and as a Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department member you will be afforded the opportunity to serve your community as a firefighter or as an Emergency Medical Provider.

As a firefighter you will be placed in an intensive 14-week fire academy where you will experience classroom, hands on fire training, and comradeship opportunities with fellow firefighters.  After the academy you will be allowed to join the prestigious ranks of the Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department where you will undergo a six-month probationary period to further your fire fighting experience.
