TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP
Prospective members must begin their career at SMFR with a semester-long rookie period, during which time they will learn the basics of their chosen unit and may observe but not run active duty. After this period they may be voted to Probationary membership, when they will officially become a member of the department.
A Probationary member is eligible for Senior membership at the conclusion of a four month active period, providing s/he has met the requirements for Senior membership of the respective unit. An individual cannot be a probationary member on both units at the same time.
A Senior member is any member who has fulfilled the requirements for senior membership and has served a minimum of four months as a Probationary member and has received the confirmation of the voting membership of the respective unit. A senior member may hold an office.
Charter Members are those individuals who founded the department and were the first members in its earliest years.
An Honorary member is an individual who in the past has shown great concern for the Department and in recognition of his/her contribution is awarded honorary membership.
An Alumni member is an individual who has graduated or left Saint Michael’s College in good standing and is still on or once again on the active roster.
An Associate member is most often an individual who would like to be a part of the Department but does not wish to actively participate in firefighting or patient care who instead provides administrative and technical support.
