Download this guide for family members of volunteer firefighters
When a person joins the volunteer fire service it not only means a lifestyle change for the individual volunteer, but also for the entire family. To help family members navigate the volunteer fire service life, the National Volunteer Fire Council(NVFC) partnered with FirefighterWife.com to create the new resource, What to Expect: A Guide for Family Members of Volunteer Firefighters.
This guide is intended for spouses, children, parents, siblings or significant others of volunteer and paid-on-call responders. It introduces family members to the basics of the volunteer firefighter life and provides guidance for keeping family relationships strong, being part of the fire department family and more. There are also first-hand accounts from volunteer firefighters and their family members along with an array of tips and resources to help first responder families adjust to this lifestyle.
