Nearly every year the Eden Prairie Fire Department has a recruiting process that begins in the spring with a recruitment open house. The purpose of the open house is to give interested women and men the chance to visit an Eden Prairie Fire Station and meet some firefighters, ask questions and find out more about what it takes to become an volunteer Eden Prairie Firefighter.
This year is no different. The 2012 Open House is tomorrow, May 9, and there are two time slots during the day when our doors will be open at Fire Station #1 to welcome those interested potential recruits in to find out more. The time slots are from 9 a.m. to Noon and then again from 6 p.m. til 9 p.m. This is a great opportunity to find out from our current firefighters what its like to be a part of the Eden Prairie Fire Department.
We’ve created a video this year as well to give folks a chance to hear right from some of our firefighters…
In addition to the video you can go and visit our website and find out more about the steps involved in becoming an Eden Prairie Firefighter, the Open House is not a required step in the process - but if you’re interested, it’s a good idea to attend.
