To find out more about volunteering in your community or lending a helping hand to the Coteau Volunteer Fire Department, stop by our General Membership Meeting on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM held at Coteau Station 1. Ask to speak to a fire ground officer to answer any questions you may have and get an application.

Once your application is received, the Coteau Volunteer Fire Department will verify all information to be correct and perform a background check. If all comes back satisfactory, the Fire Chief presents the application to the Department Board for consideration as a probationary member. After 3 months of probationary service, the board reviews the activity of the probationary member and if all requirements are met, the probationary member is presented to the General Membership of the department for voting in as a member of the department. Once obtaining a full membership with the Coteau Volunteer Fire Department, New Members will receive specialized training in several areas of the fire service, support roles and volunteer service.
