"Champions aren't made in gyms.
Champions are made from something they
have inside of them; a desire, a dream,
a vision. They have to have lasting
stamina; they have to have skill and the
will. But the will must be stronger than
the skill." Muhammad Ali
Volunteering is giving of yourself and
your time to others needs.
Is there a
champion in you?
Commitment Required from All Volunteers:
To remain in good standing, each
volunteer must maintain a minimum of 30
points per quarter by participating in
Wednesday night drills, responding to
emergency calls, shift participation or
a combination of these listed.
Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue maintains five
volunteer fire stations with a dedicated
force of over 70 volunteers. We
cover approximately 170 square miles
located in and around the cities
of Kelso and Longview, Washington,
between the cities of Castle Rock and
Kalama on the I-5 corridor. Volunteers
are assigned to a station depending on
where they live. Drill nights are
every Wednesday from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. As
space is available, ride time is
possible on these nights until you are
cleared to respond with your station.
Until you are notified that you are
covered by our insurance, there is to be
NO participation in drills, etc.
With all entry level paperwork complete,
recruit academy successfully completed,
rookie book successfully completed,
First Responder and EMT certifications
in order, name badge identification
given out, clothing and bunker gear
issued, the volunteer will then be
directed to report to their assigned
stations. The Station Captain or
designee will assist with the proficiency
checklist. At this time, volunteers
are operational and can begin serving
their local community.
