Until recently, volunteer opportunities at fire departments weren’t readily available unless community members were interested in fighting fire. To provide more opportunities for citizens to give back, HCESD 48 established the Community Team.
Community Team volunteers assist and support HCESD 48 behind the front lines in non-firefighting duties including the Community Education Team (school programs), CPR instructors, Car Seat Safety, Rehab (support and rehydrate fire crews at major scenes), Public Relations events, and Administrative Support. HCESD 48 is very proud of the Community Team. Our volunteers bring their unique talents and skill sets and work together to make a positive impact in the community.
The goal of the Community Team is to connect with our citizens wherever they are. Whether digitally through one of our our social media platforms or in person in neighborhoods, offices, schools, or places of worship, our goal is to educate community members through engaging programs designed to help keep them and their families safe.
