2. Associate Member

Do you have a specialized skill or hobby you can contribute? The Truro Volunteer Fire Brigade will accept applications from individuals wishing to join the Brigade but do not want to become qualified to be a firefighter. Associate Members provide non-operational support for the Brigade. From computer/IT support, public relations, photography, maintenance, community education and administrative functions – there is plenty to do behind the scenes. Anyone who does not have the desire to participate directly in emergency services, or those who cannot meet the physical demands, are encouraged to serve our Brigade in this capacity. Associate members do not participate in any emergency responses nor are they required to attend the required training under our operations divisions.
