Becoming a Firefighter

Like many Minnesota fire departments, the Lakeville Fire Department is comprised of paid on-call firefighters. Each firefighter, after being accepted, must complete extensive training before becoming a full member.

Upcoming informational meetings:

Probationary Period


Candidates who meet these criteria are taken on as probationary firefighters. During the 2-year probationary period, firefighters undergo a regimen of training and testing before becoming a full member.
