Become a Firefighter!


Few professions provide the sense of accomplishment and personal enrichment that fire service professionals enjoy. There is tremendous satisfaction in having saved a life, controlled a structure fire, comforted an accident victim, or taught a skill that prevented a child from becoming injured. Becoming a paid on-call firefighter may be one of the most personally rewarding things you could ever do.   

The Mendota Heights Fire Department annually hires new firefighters to begin the Department's training program in the fall. If you are interested in learning more about what it takes to become a firefighter, consider attending an information session on March 28 at 6 p.m. or May 13 at 9 a.m., at the Mendota Heights Fire Station (2121 Dodd Road).

Applications will be accepted March 13–May 13. The next Fire Academy class begins Thursday, Aug. 3.
