Join Big Sur Fire

Big Sur Fire Membership

We are always looking for dedicated persons who would love to serve their community as members of Big Sur Fire.  Prospective members of Big Sur Fire must be 18 years of age or over, physically fit, and live within our response zone that extends from Hurricane Point on the north, to the Monterey/San Luis Obispo County line on the south. Within the first year of being accepted into Big Sur Fire, we require new members to take a California State Fire Marshal Firefighter 1 class, and additional classes in CPR, Hazardous Materials First Responder, Incident Command System 100 & 200, and at a minimum a Title 22 medical first responder class. You may join Big Sur Fire as a medical first responder only, in which case you will need at a minimum a medical first responder class, along with hazardous materials and incident command training.


In order to participate on our rescue team,  we require members to be a firefighter and medical first responder. We hold training sessions four different times a month and require probationary members to attend a minimum of one training session a month during their probationary period of one year.

Big Sur Fire Auxiliary Membership

We are currently in the process of forming an auxiliary. This will allow people other than the current operational members to be able to help at some of the many non-emergency and community functions for which Big Sur Fire  provides support and volunteers. Auxiliary volunteers will help in many ways including logistics and staffing of major emergencies as well as our annual Firefighters’ Muster, community BBQs, and traffic control for community events. Because our funding is based on grants and donations, the Auxiliary is of major importance in our on-going fundraising efforts.

If you are interested in becoming an Auxiliary member of Big Sur Fire, please call us at 831-667-2113 or email to:
