Traditional Volunteers

"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.
