Haleyville Fire/Rescue is currently taking applications to become a volunteer (paid-on-call) member. Applications to become a volunteer (paid-on-call) firefighter are available during normal business hours at the Haleyville Fire Department or Haleyville City Hall. Applications will be taken from anyone 18 years of age or older that live in or within a 5 mile radius of the Haleyville Fire coverage area. New volunteer members are approved by the city council upon recommendations of a committee consisting of the Chief, Assistant Chief, Mayor or fire department council liaison and two members at large of Haleyville Fire/Rescue. All new members will be required to pass a medical physical and criminal background check. All new members will be required to complete the 160 hour volunteer firefighter certification course and 24 hour medical first responder course within 3 years of becoming a member. Both courses are taught in house at no cost and college credit through the Alabama Fire College may be received upon completion. Paid on call members are compensated $17.16 for every call/drill they attend and are paid once a month. For further information contact Chief Phillip Weaver at Haleyville Fire/Rescue.
