The City of Linden Fire Department is currently accepting applications for the position of probationary paid on-call firefighters (volunteer), especially those that are available during the daytime hours. If you are looking for a way to give back to your community and experience the rewards of hard work and a great team atmosphere, please submit an application to the Fire Department.
The Linden Fire Department is made up of paid, on-call volunteers who are residents of our local community. Many of us are your neighbors, co-workers, or friends. Linden's firefighters do not live at the fire station or spend all day working a shift at the fire station. We are a group of men and women who have everyday jobs, but are ready to go at any time that a call comes in.
We might be builders, landscapers, farmers, business owners, stay-at-home parents, or even retirees; but when the call comes we become part of a dedicated team ready to face any emergency. We may be volunteers, but we are trained and capable people on the front line saving lives and property.
The Department currently consists of approximately 19 volunteers working under the direction of Chief Brian Will.
Minimum qualifications for the position of probationary paid on-call firefighters include:
- Live within the City of Linden's Fire Department service area.
- Must be at least eighteen (18) years of age.
- Must provide proof of High School Graduation or G.E.D.
