Firefighting Could Be Your Calling—You Just Don't Know It Yet

Do you feel like your life is missing something? Ever wonder if you are meant for more than your average 9 to 5 job? If this sounds familiar, the Golden Valley Fire Department (GVFD) might be able to offer what it is you’re missing.

Paid on-call firefighters respond to calls for service, including but not limited to fires, rescues, and medicals. Firefighters also act as community stewards, participating in fire prevention/educational activities, providing safety programs for commercial/industrial employees, and more.

Those interested in a fire service career are encouraged to attend an upcoming recruitment event.

Recruitment Meetings

July 7 & Aug 11
9:30 am & 6:30 pm
Fire Station One (7800 Golden Valley Rd)

At the recruitment meetings, attendees talk with firefighters about how they make the profession work in their lives and learn what it means to become a firefighter.

Recruitment Expo

July 23, 9 am
Fire Station One (7800 Golden Valley Rd)

At the Recruitment Expo, participants get to try on gear, climb the ladder truck (if you wish), cut a car apart, see all kinds of fire equipment, and more.

For information about joining the GVFD, call 763-593-3977 or email
