Interested in joining us? Most of the Department’s Fire Fighting and EMS positions are part-time/on-call positions. If you are interested in helping your community, willing to respond to calls for emergency assistance, and able to complete the required training the City of Northville Fire Department may be the place for you!
To apply you need to be at least 18 years old and a high school
graduate. You must also hold a Fire Fighter I or II certification from
the State of Michigan and must successfully complete the Council of
Western Wayne written and physical agility tests, or have completed Fire
Fighter training and certification through a Department sponsored class.
Some of these requirements may be waived if you have worked for another
fire department. The Department strongly encourages all personnel to
complete Fire Fighter II training and to obtain EMS licensure at the
Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic level. Prior to being hired,
personnel must complete a background check and physical and
psychological examinations. Applications for employment are available at
City Hall or by clicking on the link below.
Our personnel are part-time City employees, and are paid at hourly rates established by the City Council for emergency response and training activities. Regular weekly training and work sessions are held on Thursday evenings between 7:00pm and 9:00pm.
Young people, age 14 to 21, who are interested in the fire and emergency medical services can join Northville Fire Department Explorer Post 1717. Post members meet twice a month and experience first-hand the operations of the Department. Members of the Post also participate in Department community activities and work on their own community service projects, as well as taking part in activities with other Explorer Posts in the region.
