We welcome young men and women who want to serve their community for as long as they want. Some stay a few years and others for decades. Many of our volunteers start with us and make a career in the fire service and the district provides members the option to prepare for a paid fire department. Some follow a medical path, others learn a lot of new skills and use them in their current or future jobs.

Our mission provides a range of fire related services designed to protect the lives and property of the residents of South Kingstown from the adverse effects of fires, emergencies and exposure to other dangerous conditions.
