Associate Membership Overview
The Associate membership option is for individuals who hold active membership with another fire department. If you have an interest in helping to staff our stations, you can join as an Associate Member. To be eligible to apply, you must provide certification from the Chief of your home fire department that you are an active member in good standing and have at least one year of service with that Fire Department.
As an Associate Member, you may function at either the Support, Exterior or Interior Firefighter status, and must show that you have completed the minimum level of training for desired level of service. You will have to complete the Marshall Twp. Volunteer Fire Department (MTVFD) orientation process before responding to calls. Associate Members are encouraged to participate in Marshall Twp. Volunteer Fire Department training but are not required to do so.
Associate membership requires membership in good standing at your home department, at least one year of service, training that meets or exceeds MTVFD training minimums and acceptance as an Associate Brigade Member by the MTVFD Chief Officer.
Associate Brigade members are expected to respond to a minimum of 10 calls or at least two hours of time on station on 10 separate occasions in a Qualification Year to remain eligible.
