LANCASTER – If you are interested in becoming a firefighter in South Glengarry, you only have a couple more days to submit an application.
The latest recruitment drive deadline for residents who want to be volunteer firefighters is Wednesday (April 20).
Applicants will go through a series of tests – an aptitude test, agility test and an interview – as part of the recruitment process.
The recruitment drive will happen on Saturday morning at the Lancaster station at 8 a.m.
Acting Fire Chief Dave Robertson says the volunteer position is more than just firefighting – it’s participating in public education, fire prevention and fundraising activities.
There are five stations in South Glengarry: Glen Walter, Martintown, Williamstown, Lancaster and North Lancaster.
Last year, there were 19 people – 17 men and two women – for the recruitment drive.
There are roughly 120 volunteer firefighters in South Glengarry.
