2021-11-03 – The District of Clearwater’s Fire Department is working towards increasing the number of active volunteers. This is important so that the community as a whole can maintain its Fire Underwriter Rating which directly impacts insurance rates for local residents and businesses. At present, our number of active volunteers sit at 16 and our goal is to increase this number to 25.
Our current reality is that our membership numbers are declining due to several factors such as career changes and retirement, and our initial recruitment efforts have had limited success. With this survey we would like to explore any potential reasons or barriers that may be impacting our recruitment efforts. It is really important that the District understands the factors and complexities that have and are potentially creating challenges in order for us to understand what we can do by way of improvements.
The completion of this survey will take no longer than 3 minutes and it will be closed 2021-12-03 at 4.30pm. We appreciate your honest feedback. Thank you!
