Shakopee Fire Department to hold recruiting events

The Shakopee Fire Department will hold several events to engage residents who might be interested in serving Shakopee as paid, on-call firefighters.

The first recruitment event will be Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. and the second will be Feb. 17 at 8 a.m. Both events will be held at the Shakopee Fire Station on Vierling Drive.

The events will allow those interested to learn more about becoming a firefighter, including roles and responsibilities. Parents should leave their children at home.

The department will begin accepting applications in mid-February. There are currently 46 paid, on-call firefighters who operate out of two fire stations. There is also a crew of full-time firefighters during the day.

Applications should be 18 years or older and live within 10 minutes of a fire station. They should have a high school diploma or GED and a driver’s license and be able to pass a background check and checks on physical requirements.

The starting wage is $13.79 an hour with pension, leadership opportunities and more.

Those interested in attending either of the recruitments should email and say which session they’d like to attend.

Interviews will be conducted in March or May.
