North Metro Fire recently was awarded a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant, which will allow us to hire nine firefighters in early 2022 to fulfill key positions within our growing fire district. We are looking for dedicated firefighters certified as paramedics to join our team.
Those who already have experience working as a full-time firefighter/paramedic will be considered for starting at a higher step grade than entry-level firefighters. First year North Metro firefighter/paramedics begin at $69,200 and are able to advance through four firefighter grades to earn $97,230.
