Volunteering makes a difference

People who volunteer their time help make the world go around – whether it’s to sign kids up for soccer, flip pancakes at rodeo events or knock on doors to collect money for fundraising initiatives. Volunteers are honourable, selfless people and things just simply wouldn’t get done without them.
And then there are volunteers who put their lives at risk – like volunteer firefighters. Our volunteer firefighters in Rocky View County are constantly putting themselves in the line of fire, battling flames, rescuing people and animals from burning buildings and extricating people from vehicles when they’ve been involved in a collision and they’re trapped.
Our volunteer firefighters are not only there to battle the blaze, but also to console people when they’re in shock and in the midst of tragedy. It takes a special kind of person to be a volunteer firefighter and Rocky View County is currently looking for people to join its team.
If you’re looking for a way to get involved in the Rocky View County community, why not give it a shot? Join them in making a difference in peoples’ lives while putting bravery and courage at the forefront, because volunteering can be one of the most rewarding jobs in the world.
