Fire Department

Volunteering at the Roseville Fire Department requires:

• RFD volunteers must be at least 21 years of age 
• RFD volunteers must make a minimum 1 year commitment of service to the Department

• RFD volunteer service will take place during normal business days of Monday - Friday and normal business hours of 8am - 5pm

• We are accepting applications year around, but hold interviews once per quarter

Currently, the City of Roseville Fire Department has two types of volunteers:

Fire Administration Volunteer
The Majority of this service is done at the Fire Administration Office at 401 Oak Street working on Community Relations, Public Education, and Fire & Life Safety Programs. Projects may include coordinating Fire Safety Rallies for Elementary Schools, marketing the Vial of Life Program, promoting Community Risk Reduction activities, or speaking to residents and groups about fire safety.

Fire Service Volunteer
The majority of service is done at the Fire Training Center doing hands-on work that supports municipal Fire Service. If you're interested in Firefighting as a career, this is the assignment for you. This is not a "Volunteer Firefighter" position rather a support position to assist the Department and its personnel. As a Fire Service Volunteer you will not be placed in live fire situations. Again, this will be a great introduction to Fire Service but you won’t get any live fire experience. Please note that we have a 3-6 month waiting period for Fire Service Volunteer positions.
