Firefighter Recruit Open House

Eden Prairie Fire Department HelmetBeing a volunteer firefighter is not about what you look like, what degree you earned or where you come from. It is about one thing: heart. Seven out of 10 firefighters and emergency responders are volunteers. If you have the heart to serve your community, you have everything we need.

We are hosting a recruitment open house Wednesday, March 16, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Fire Station 1 to kick off the 2016 recruitment process. Here you can learn more about how our department and our duty crew system work directly from others just like you – students, teachers, technicians, lawyers, full-time parents and business executives. Find out if this opportunity is for you!

The Eden Prairie Fire Department is comprised of four fire stations and a staff of 95 duty crew firefighters, in addition to nine full-time firefighters. As a duty crew firefighter you have the ability to control your schedule with shifts that meet your lifestyle and career, all while giving a little something back to the community in which you live.

Being a duty crew firefighter is about a lot more than just putting out fires. It’s an opportunity to learn cutting edge skills that prepare you to join others from in and around Eden Prairie to help members of your community lead safer lives and get aid when they need it most.

We hope to see you there!
