Are there full-time opportunities at Fridley?

Not currently.  Fridley consists of a combination model fire division with minimal opportunities for full-time employment.  However, several of our members use the model for considerable working hours and experience at a busy department. Many of our firefighters are full-time/career at other metro fire departments, a job you can typically do while still being involved here at Fridley.  Full-time opportunities are on the rise amongst metro fire departments.   Most of which are looking for experience as a paid-on-call firefighter and advanced training in areas such as inspections, public education, instruction, leadership, or hazardous materials – all of which can be pursued and is encouraged while working as   Fridley paid-on-call firefighter.
