Join Us

Rainbow Volunteer Fire Department invites citizens from White Oak and all surrounding communities, we have three forms of membership to choose from: Regular Active, Junior (14-18 years of age) and Associate.

There are many benefits to being a member of Rainbow VFC. The obvious are the sense of community, camaraderie and assisting your fellow man. Volunteerism rewards you with a wonderful sense of purpose. In addition, Rainbow VFC boasts an amazing weight room, access to a wide variety of free training, as well as FREE college education through CCAC’s FIREVEST Scholarship.

There are a few requirements to being a member of Rainbow Volunteer Fire Company, including making your required number of points (208) and Fundraising Credits (6). However, members have plenty of opportunities throughout the year to meet those goals, averaging 300 calls a year including fire, vehicle rescue, rope rescue, hazmat, wildfire, and many more. Also, Rainbow VFC hosts many fundraisers, totaling 20+ per year! It can be hard work, but it is always rewarding knowing that you are helping your community, and building lifelong friendships.

But do not forget! Rainbow VFC needs the help of non-firefighting members too! You do not need to have previous training, or even physical ability to join our fire fighting family, helping at fundraisers, community events, and being an extra mind or set of hands is always welcome. Fill out our inquiry page to receive a call or email with more information!
