Volunteer Recruitment

Delaware is launching a new campaign to get more volunteer firefighters as the state deals with declining numbers. Some of Delaware’s 60 plus companies are even offering to let some firefighters live in the firehouse. Tim Furlong explains the desperate situation and the race to get more bodies on the firetrucks.
