Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Verona Fire Department. This is a decision that should not be taken lightly and should be discussed with your family. Being a Paid-On-Call Firefighter requires much of your time for training and responding to calls, but there is nothing you can do with your time that will be more rewarding than helping those when they are in need. Becoming a member will require a serious commitment, determination, and dedication, as this is a very important service that we provide in a professional manner.

We are always accepting applications for Paid-On-Call Firefighters and we are very dependent on these members to ensure that we are able to meet our mission of protecting the community. On this page you will find our membership requirements, benefits, and application. If you have any questions please contact us at 608-845-9401.
