TargetSolutions worked with the IAFC-VCOS to release a new course for fire departments: Maximizing Your Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment Efforts with an Effective Open House.
It’s no secret that recruitment is one of the largest issues for volunteer fire departments. As the rate of emergency calls skyrocket, recruitment numbers are on the decline and volunteer fire departments are increasingly overwhelmed.
Recruitment events such as open houses have been popular for community outreach efforts for volunteer and combination fire departments around the country…but are you getting the most out of open houses? Do you focus on public education, safety, and the recruitment of potential new volunteers? All three aspects are equally as important in gaining new members.
To help address some of these issues for volunteer fire department recruitment, TargetSolutions worked with the International Association of Fire Chiefs – Volunteer & Combination Officers Section (IAFC-VCOS). Through this partnership, TargetSolutions released the new course: Maximizing Your Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment Efforts with an Effective Open House.
