Contact the Village Municipal Office to request an application or contact any Fire Department member.  The Village will contact the Fire Chief to inform him/her of your interest. The Fire Chief will then contact the potential applicant.  Once an application is submitted it will go before the Executive Committee of the Fire Department and they will conduct an interview with the applicant.  The Fire Departments’ Executive Committee will forward a recommendation at the Fire Department’s next regularly scheduled meeting and the Fire Department members will vote.  If the Fire Department approves the application they will forward a recommendation on to the Board of Trustees for final approval.


What is the application process to join a Sutherland Village Board?
