Eden Prairie, Minn. — The Eden Prairie Fire Department is currently recruiting volunteer firefighting staff and is hosting an Open House event Wednesday May 8, from 9 a.m. to noon, and 6 to 9 p.m. at Fire Station 1 (14800 Scenic Heights Road).
Successful recruits become a part of the team as a part-time, paid volunteer firefighter. Few part-time jobs afford the chance to help others, serve the community and qualify for a pension, all while providing an essential public service.
More information about the 2013 recruiting process is available at edenprairie.org/epfdrecruiting.
