How can I volunteer and what are the requirements for membership? Do I need prior experience?

You must be at least 18 years of age; high school graduate or equivalent; hold a valid driver’s license and be insurable under our driving insurance policy. Additionally, you must successfully complete an Moscow Volunteer Deparmtnet (MVFD) physical abilities (strength and agility) test and provide a physical (medical) examination which verifies that you are fit to perform typical firefighting/EMT duties. You must be eager to meet the considerable time commitment required. We will provide all necessary gear.


For firefighters, no prior experience is necessary and all training is provided. The Ambulance Company does require that you hold a current EMT certification to be considered for membership. Call our administrative office at 208-882-2831 for further information or fill out and submit an application (PDF). See full contact information.
