Do you have a desire, and passion to help your community?  Do you want to make a difference, and help your neighbors?  Have you ever wanted to know more about the Fire Industry, and what it takes to be a firefighter?  The Big Marsh Fire Department is actively taking applications, and recruiting for volunteer firefighter positions.  We are looking for members who are dedicated, self-driven, safety minded, and are willing to get out of bed in the middle of the night, or respond to a call for help in the worst possible weather.  The job requires a vast amount of training, and dedication in order to safely help those in need, and a level of professionalism in order to maintain state, and departmental standards.  We are a family, and we grow together with the help of everyone involved.

Hurricane Matthew 2016
The Big Marsh Volunteer Fire Department and it's members worked tirelessly throughout Hurricane Matthew, in conjuction with neighboring agencies, to help the residents of their community.  The members left their own families to help their community, and ensure the safety of the residents who were trapped or stranded.  Many people within Robeson County, and surrounding areas were heavily impactedby Hurricane Matthew, and the members of the Big Marsh Volunteer Fire Department were out working through the entire storm, at the risk of their own safety, to make sure their community was not left alone.  A huge thanks to the St. Pauls Fire Department, St. Pauls EMS, St. Pauls Police Department, Robeson County Sheriff's Office, Robeson County EMS, and the many other agencies/departments that assisted during Hurricane Matthew 2016.
