[ARCHIVED] Join the Fire Department

Being a Maple Grove firefighter is a unique part-time job with both scheduled and unscheduled/on-call response hours that are not predictable. This is not a full-time job, and our firefighters work in other careers. Over 90% of fire departments in Minnesota and the Twin Cities operate this way. This job requires commitment, a desire to progress through the orientation and training process, and be self-motivated.

The Maple Grove Fire Department recruits part-time/on-call firefighters annually. Applicants must currently reside in Maple Grove or live within a five-minute response to one of our five fire stations. The hiring process includes successfully passing an interview, reference and background checks, a physical ability test, a psychological evaluation, and a medical evaluation and drug screen.
