How to Join GFD
To become a member:
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Firefighter for the City of Goldendale, please visit during one of our weekly trainings every Monday from 7PM to 9PM, and talk with Fire Chief Marty Hudson or one of the three Captains. You will be asked to complete a Member Application form and will be subject to a background check. No physical agility test is required, however, you must have a doctor’s physical exam (expenses paid for by the City of Goldendale) completed before you will be issued gear.
To maintain your firefighter status you are expected to attend 50% of the trainings and to make at least 25% of the calls.
