Can I claim mileage as a Volunteer Firefighter for past years? I claimed the mileage for the 2017. Is there a way to get credit for 2015 and 2016?

Yes, but you will have to amend your 2015 and 2016 returns to do so.

With the volunteer mileage at $14/mile. it is quite possible that the deduction may not make much difference to you.
