Volunteer fire and EMS agencies are experiencing challenges with the recruitment and retention of personnel. This lecture will outline how departments can successfully recruit and retain personnel for their agency using current resources. The lecture will be based on a three-year doctoral study on retention and offer participants research-based/proven strategies to reduce turnover and increase recruitment among all generations of volunteers. Attendees will not only learn strategies to help overcome the biggest barriers to retention and recruitment of emergency personnel, but through both discussions, review of a planning document, and hands-on activities will be able to go home and draft a personalized plan to increase and maintain members.
