No; there are currently not any volunteer opportunities available with the Fire Department. All Elk River firefighters are paid-on-call, meaning that they are paid when they respond to calls for service, attend training, work at special events, etc. Paid-on-call firefighters are considered part-time employees of the City of Elk River.

When the firefighter hiring process opens, a full job posting and application for employment will be available on the City of Elk River website under Employment Opportunities.

The hiring process for firefighters is currently open - apply today!
Due to expense and security concerns, we are unable to honor requests for uniform patches or other memorabilia. Patches, t-shirts, etc are property of the City of Elk River and are only issued to active fire department personnel.
