Dunnigan Fire Protection District

Reserve Firefighter

What I liked

Working at DFPD was an excellent way to get experience in the fire service. My coworkers were young, hardworking, and eager to learn; a substantial portion went on to full-time career firefighter positions. I loved that we ran enough real-world calls to make the shifts worth it, but not so many where we didn't have time to train, exercise, and spend time together as a crew. This is a great job for a college student looking for meaningful work in a non-traditional setting.

What I wish was different



I'd recommend DFPD for any young person looking to build experience for a long-term career in fire, EMS, or any other emergency service. If you know it's for you, come physically fit and ready to learn.
