Volunteering allows us to give something back to our communities. Today, there are so many demands on our time, and firefighting or emergency services require specialized training in addition to the presence of a warm body. There are probably tens of reasons not to volunteer. However, if you have a sense of civic pride, if you want to see immediate results of a job well done, if you have the heart and spirit to make your community a better place, consider volunteering with the Mendon Fire Department. You may find meaning previously lacking in your work and your life, and you may also find a career.
