Are there any volunteer opportunities with the Fire Department?

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.
