Online Application


Important Notice: If you submit your application and you do not hear from us within 7 days, please call 501-413-7243 and state so. It has come to our attention that some applications are processed but somehow do not make it to the database that we use for processing new recruits. We can manually enter in your data if need be.

Please also note that if an error occurrs when you submit you are probably entered into the Queue. You can go to and verify that your username is listed as being in the Queue in the division you've specified. If you don't see your name, then go back and redo with a different name. If you still manage to have multiple applications you will receive an email that the additional requests have been denied and your original application will be processed. We apologize for both of these, but it's a fault with the server on our web host.

Section I - Personal Information
(Disclaimer: All information contained in this application exists only for the life of the application and once final approval or declined is executed, all data is erased from the server and no backups are made. Only the Username, Email, City and Phone information are transferred to the membership system that is secured from public access. Personal information of ADF members and applicants are protected under the bylaws of the ADF and will not be shared with any other party.)

Please note that occasionally an error screen will occur when you submit your application. This is a fault of our hosting service not the application. Although it will give you the impression that your application was not recorded it actually is. If you do not see your username listed in the page, then you should resubmit your application with a different username.

Section II - Involvement

Membership is voluntary, and will last until the member withdraws or is dismissed by proper authority in accordance with these Bylaws. Individuals currently serving as Active Duty, National Guard, or Reserves of such are ineligible for membership in accordance with federal and state law.

All Defense Force members understand and agree that any and all injuries, whether minor or severe, including death, are not a responsibility of the Defense Force and no lawsuits or claims can be levied against the Defense Force, either by the member or the members family, or to any landowner (if applicable) where the injury or death took place. Members who serve in the Operations Division shall be free from permanent disability which precludes their effective training and employment as a member of that Division.
