  • Where to volunteer in Mont. County MD?

    Looking for some opinions/advice on what department to volunteer at. I am considering:
    Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad
    Silver Spring Volunteer Fire Dept.
    Cabin John Park Volunteer Fire Dept.

    I am having some trouble deciding which route I should take. My goals are to:
    1-Serve my community
    2-Challange myself along the way
    3-If I am going to commit to volunteering I want to actually do the work
    4-I would like to be a fire fighter/rescuer. I know EMT training is required at some departments in order to procede to fire fighter.

    Concerns I have are:
    1-Do the volunteers actually get to go on calls and do the work?
    2-Organization structure. Disciplined or just a good ol boys club?
    3-Stand by flexibility. I understand the commitment required of being a volunteer but is there some flexibilty if one has family conflicts?
    4-Last but not least is my age. I am 39. I am physically fit and feel I would have no trouble doing the job.

    Any help is appreciated
    Thanks
