City of Maumelle Fire Department MaumelleFire.Com
Volunteer Firefighters

What is now the incorporated City of Maumelle was originally protected by a volunteer fire department during the early stages of its development as a planned "New Town" community in the 1970s. The volunteers continued to serve a significant role as a part of the fire division in the Department of Public Safety, a combined police & fire organization that served Maumelle until 2004. Today, a select group of men and women continue to train and prepare to help neighbors in crisis for little compensation or recognition.

These volunteer firefighters are an integral part of our department. When incidents occur that have the potential to exceed the capabilities of the on-duty staff, Maumelle's volunteer firefighters are automatically notified by radio pagers of the incident and respond if they are available. Currently, the volunteer fire division consists of 14 members led by Captains Ed Platt & Larry Pruss.

Join The Ranks
The Maumelle Fire Department is always looking for persons willing to serve as volunteer firefighters. Applicants should be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or equivalent and have no felony convictions. Previous firefighting experience is not required. The responsibilities of volunteer firefighters include responding to calls when available and attending twice-monthly training meetings. The department provides all volunteers with protective equipment, radio pagers and necessary training.

For more information about becoming a volunteer firefighter, contact Chief George Glenn at (501) 851-1337 (Ext 201) or visit our headquarters at 2000 Murphy Drive during normal business hours.
