    Key Largo and Palm Beach County come to mind.

    I think maybe Plantation and Southwest Ranches in Broward have volunteers.

    All the departments in Manatee County have volunteers and some have "part time" firefighters. A buddy worked part time for one. He earned $100 a shift.
    ...at this time.

    Deltona?
    Melbourne
    Orange City
    Flagler County
    Indian harbor beach
    Polk county?
    Edgewater, live within city limits
    Miramar
    City of Flagler Beach
    Check out the cities in Lake and Sumter counties as well
    Many other coastal cities do it, those are the big ones I listed

    As far as the Orlando/Orange county area, there are no volunteer departments with the exception of Apopka. If you're looking to volunteer, it is gonna be a drive. In addition, expect a waiting list.
    I started as a volunteer and loved it, got hired on full time with the department I started out on. Best job in the world. If anyone needs help or advice with volunteering, get in touch with me.
