BURBANK FIRE DEPARTMENT
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DIVISION
Welcome to the official site of the Burbank Fire Corps Program (BFCP). The BFCP is an all-volunteer section of the Burbank Fire Department Emergency Management Division. The BFCP is affiliated with the Federal Fire Corps program, as well as Citizen Corps in regards to the CERT mission. Finally, the BFCP follows Cal OES guidelines and it's members are state-registered Disaster Service Workers.
Burbank's Fire Corps program operates as an auxiliary support arm of the Burbank Fire Department. Our regular taskings include Community Volunteer Fire Patrol, a canteen service for firefighter relief, meeting our auxiliary communications obligations, promoting disaster awareness through the community and maintaining CERT operational readiness.
The BFCP meets regularly on the 3rd Wednesday of every month (except December, no December meeting). These meetings are open to the general public and all are invited to attend. Typically, Fire Corps coordinators conduct training and seminars on a variety of disaster preparedness, response and recovery topics and many time involve either hands-on training or special guest speakers.
For information on volunteering with the BFCP, please check the recruitment page.
