Ride-Along Program

The Vandalia Fire Division takes a special interest in assisting EMT, Paramedic, and Nursing students in obtaining their hours of clinical time required by an accredited institute as part of their certification programs.

The Division of Fire requires every rider to complete a waiver release form. A waiver release form for adults (over 18) can be printed off on line by clicking here for release forms for adults (over 18).

Riders under the age of 18 must have a waiver release signed by their parent or guardian prior to the ride along; this form can be obtained from the Fire Administration office on the day of the ride along.
