This video looks at the people who are volunteers with Boise County Emergency Services, what they do, and why more volunteers are needed to meet the needs for emergency services in rural counties such as Boise County, Idaho.
Set against the backdrop of an emergency response exercise held in Centerville, Idaho on May 16, 2015, federal, state, and local emergency responders along with volunteers get training on multi agency response to mock exercises.
There is always a need for more people to volunteer and help out with emergency services in rural communities such as Boise County, Idaho.
You don't have to be a firefighter or an EMT to help out as a volunteer with local emergency services.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact your local emergency services department!
