Join our elite team of first responders! Firefighters respond to fire alarms as a team, and assist in extinguishing fires to protect lives and property. This includes administering first aid, rescuing in emergencies, and inspecting buildings for fire hazards to ensure compliance with fire prevention ordinances. Firefighters may also be assigned to work in support of divisions, such as human resources, fire dispatch or community outreach.
