The North Grenville Fire Service (NGFS) is looking for some new members. A volunteer firefighter orientation is in the works for sometime in October.

Deputy Chief Randy Urslak says the ideal candidate would live and work locally and be able to respond to calls during the day.  

He says being a volunteer firefighter is a major time commitment of between two and 10 hours each week. There are currently 40 volunteer firefighters serving North Grenville. The goal is to bring on six new members. Applications are being accepted now and into October.

Urslak says the orientation will give people an overview of the expectations and allow interested candidates to ask questions.

New recruits are required to pass a physical aptitude test and take a 120-hour training course.
