nora-springs-fire-and-rescueBANCROFT, IOWA – Free workshops are being offered to help communities retain and recruit emergency service volunteers.

The next workshop is being held on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at the Bancroft City Hall, 105 E. Ramsey Street. The workshop will be hosted by Chief Mike Doocy and cover techniques on retaining and recruiting Emergency Service Volunteers. Those who attend will “learn how to keep the great volunteers you already have” and will write a plan to recruit new volunteers for your department.

According to workshop organizers, volunteer organizations face big challenges staffing their departments. “You will learn real world practices and write a plan to use in your community. The most effective way to get volunteers (recruit) is to keep (retain) the ones you already have. Your current volunteers will be your best recruiters. All fire, EMS and rescue members of your department should attend this workshop.”
