Cave Spring Volunteer Fire Department seeks volunteers

Coronavirus

CAVE SPRING, Va. (WFXR) – Many people, organizations and businesses have all been affected by COVID-19 – this includes fire departments all over the country that are finding it difficult to maintain adequate staff.

The Cave Spring Volunteer Fire Department is experiencing those challenges as well.

For the past two years, the department has spent more than $35,000 on recruitment campaigns, only to have limited success.

They say it’s because society is changing with life commitments already in place for many which in turn can make it difficult for people to volunteer their time.

“It’s not just the fire department, it’s the little league, scouts, PTAs, all volunteer-based, are having trouble because people don’t have the time to put into it. It’s difficult.”

Volunteers must be 16 or older and as long as you are physically able, the Cave Spring Volunteer Fire Department wants to talk to you.
