Firefighter Recruitment Event

  • Intro Text 7 p.m. at Fire Station 1; Interested candidates only

The Shakopee Fire Department is hosting a recruitment event for residents interested in learning more about becoming a paid-on-call firefighter. Two events will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 and 8 a.m. Feb. 17 at Shakopee Fire Station 1, 2700 Vierling Drive E. These will be opportunities for interested candidates and their spouses to learn more about the role and responsibilities of being a paid-on-call firefighter, as well as participate in hands-on skill stations. Parents should leave their children at home.

Candidates interested in attending a recruitment event are asked to email and indicate which session they will be attending in order to provide the department with a proper estimate.

Paid-on-call firefighter applications will be accepted on the city website beginning in February. Interviews are tentatively scheduled for March with a  late May start date.

More information about the recruitment process is available on the Becoming a Firefighter webpage.
