Who can be a member?
Just about anyone can be a member. You may not participate if you are a registered sex offender, convicted felon or have been convicted of a D.U.I. within the past 5 years. After completing an Application for Membership and having been accepted by the Chief as a candidate, you will remain a probationary member (probie) for 90 days. During the 90 days, a complete criminal history will run along with a constant evaluation of your ability to learn, work with the team and conduct yourself in an ethical manner. After your graduate from probie to firefighter, you will have all rights and privledges of a full member.
If you are interested in joining, you should come to one of our meetings to turn in your application. You can find an application at the bottom of this page.
Firefighter: Of course, the most vital member of a fire department is a firefighter. Experience is always welcome, but all we require is a heart of giving and a willingness to learn. You will not be placed into danger until you have been adequately trained to handle dangerous situations. Training occurs during a monthly training meeting, Click here to find out when the next meeting will be. There are plenty of tasks to be done other than running into burning buildings! Everything from salvage and overhaul of a structure fire to washing a fire engine, firefighters are the work horse of any department.
Although it is not required, all active firefighters are strongly encouraged to attend and complete the following classes offered locally through the Mississippi State Fire Academy (MSFA) Extension Services Division.
- Certified Volunteer Level 1
- Certified Volunteer Level 2
- HAZMAT Awareness & Operations
- Certified Rural Driver/Operator
First Responder/Rescue: Currently, medical calls make of almost 75% of Biggersville Fire & Rescue's call volume. First Responders are called out to everything from a motor vehicle crashes to assisting someone with difficulty breathing. First Responders are responsible for numerous other tasks like setting up landing zones for air ambulances, operating extrication tools at a wreck and assisting an EMS crew in the back of an ambulance. To participate in this program you must train and obtain the level of Nationally Registered First Responder. To find out when classes are being offered, contact the Alcorn County Office of Emergency Services.
