    Default How to get more volunteers

    The department I am with is very short on help. We have an aprox. 15 to 20 man roster and about half show up to trainings, meeting, and calls. How can we get more people interested in showing up, and volunteering?

    Make it interesting to be there? Even Fun?

    Get new blood in there?

    Young blood?

    Have you looked at SAFER grants for recruiting and retention?

    Have you looked at training with your neighbors?

    What is your normal training night like? Where are you located?

    Default Volunteer's

    If you figure out how to get more Volunteers please share it...We here in Idaho have been trying and trying. We 've tried to come up with different ideas with little success. Thrown money at them..given them incentives to show up. There are several other ideas that are in the works....so please let me know what you come up with.
