Step 7: Possess Good Time Management Skills

Kendra Weikman & Luther Berge

Being a volunteer is a great way to start out in the industry, but there are also other factors you may have to consider. Most volunteer firefighters have full-time jobs and families.

Learning how to prioritize your schedule will be one of the most useful skills during your time volunteering. Thankfully, a lot of departments across the country have set meeting schedules and trainings that you can prepare for ahead of time.

Time management is a set of principles, practices, skills, tools, and systems working together to help you get more value out of your time with the aim of improving the quality of your life.

Though it can be a time consuming job, volunteering is well worth the effort and work in the long run.
