Thank you for your interest in applying for membership to the Central Orchard Mesa Volunteer Fire Department.  I invite you to read the information provided on the job application to ensure you understand the commitment required to achieve and maintain membership with our fire department. The application is located on the following link.


The job of firefighter/EMT is or can be one of high risk. Part of the commitment you will be making will be to respond to fires, emergency medical, rescue calls, training sessions and monthly business meetings. This requires a commitment from you to attend training every Tuesday night with occasional weekends and commit to responding to calls at any given time of day or night.


The Central Orchard Mesa Fire Department is a volunteer agency and does not compensate its members for the hours spent doing fire department/district business. This includes, but is not limited to, all training activities and time spent going to, coming from or attendance on calls.


If you are interested in becoming a member, please down-load the application and send it to our email address with "new application" in the subject line, or send it to the department mailing address.

We look forward to hearing from you!


Sincerely,Chief Dave Gitchell
