FAQ

Can a Firefighter speak to our group/class?

We look forward to the opportunity to meet with you.  We have many different programs available or have the ability to tailor one to fit your needs.  You may schedule a speaker through the Community Education unit.

How do I get or trade patches?

Many of our stations and units have designed unique patches that are popular with collectors.  We are not able to distribute patches, although the Ventura County Professional Firefighters Association  does have some of them available.  To view the patches within the fire department, see Patches.

What fire department activities are going on in my area?

We have many ongoing programs and activities.   Throughout the year, special activities or events are scheduled.  These will be highlighted on this website and may also be featured in the media.  See the Community Programs section and the CERT Training Calendar to view what the Community Education unit is involved in.

How do I become a volunteer?

Our Community Service Volunteer program allows the public to use their special skills and talents to be of service to the Ventura County Fire Department and their communities.  See the Volunteer page for more information.
