How do I obtain an application to be a paid-on-call firefighter?

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. We do not have applications available, or accept applications, for the firefighter positions unless the hiring process is officially open (i.e. we do not keep applications on file for future openings). The hiring process for firefighters is currently open - apply today!
