Our Mission.

To help fire departments recruit members and point potential volunteers to a department that fits their need.

What We Do.

Working with an initial group of fire departments, VWS helps create marketing materials, studies the demographics of the local region and their department members and customizes items needed to assist in reaching out to potential members.

Our Supporters.

The Volunteer Workforce Solutions program is funded through a FEMA SAFER grant. Program partners include the North Carolina Association of Fire Chiefs (NCAFC) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.

Resources for North Carolina Fire Departments

Through the VWS program, the North Carolina Association of Fire Chiefs provides marketing, training and support to participating departments to assure the success of their recruitment and retention campaign. All departments in the state will receive recruitment, retention, and leadership support as well as opportunities to participate in a statewide media campaign and trainings put on by NCVWS.

Data Improves Recruitment and Retention Locally and Nationally

The VWS program offers departments GIS-based reports to assist in their recruitment efforts. The Tapestry Data allows departments to utilize solid information to custom build a recruitment plan to meet their specific needs.
