The Belton Fire Department prides itself on having a staff of truly dedicated volunteers that make up the majority of our fire-rescue force.  We are always looking to add community servants, like you, to our amazing team.  Please call us at 864-338-7048 or email us at and we will gladly let you know about our rewarding opportunities that you can be a part of.  Please feel free to stop by the fire station on Zion St. behind City Hall and talk with our career staff to learn more about our daily routine and to check out the trucks/equipment. 

Firefighters have several duties, the most important of which is selflessly serving their communities at all times. They respond to emergency calls and requests for help, attending to emergency events such as fires, road accidents, and floods. Our department also provided medical first responder care to assist EMTs and Paramedics.  They also are responsible for educating their communities about fire safety.  As you can see, there are a number of areas to serve and we can use your talents if you are willing to share them.  Read below to see how you can help.

Administrative Support
Administrative support staff provides technical and professional support to fire departments. They typically assist with the business and operations of the corporation, managing human resources, record keeping, maintenance, and help with social media and website development.

First Responders/EMT
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are trained to respond to emergency situations and perform lifesaving techniques until a patient is able to be transported to a hospital or treatment facility. They are also often responsible for transferring patients via ambulance to the closest medical facility.

Auxiliary Firefighters
Auxiliary Firefighters support the fire departments in many ways, driving trucks, maintaining and cleaning the fire equipment, and assisting in fundraising and community awareness efforts. They dedicate their time and skills to whatever area the fire department needs assistance.

Explorer/Junior Firefighters
The Explorer/Junior Firefighter Program is open to members who are under 18 years of age. They are able to experience firsthand what it is like to be a volunteer or full-time Firefighter and Emergency Service Provider through training and ride-alongs. The primary goals of the program are to give young adults a look into possible career paths and to challenge them to become responsible citizens within their communities.
