King County Fire District #2 maintains a volunteer program to supplement its career staff. The role of a volunteer is to assist firefighters in the course of their duties, including assisting in the tasks of firefighting, mitigating medical emergencies, and participating in public education and fire prevention activities.
Volunteers are required to attend 3 of 4 drill nights per month. Each volunteer must also work a shift from 7pm to 7am on their assigned night (generally every 9 days). In addition, volunteers are instructed to staff apparatus during call-back assignments.
