The NLFD is always taking applications from interested individuals. Applicants must be 18 years of age and have a valid driver’s license. The NLFD offers positions for part-time firefighters, paid-per call, and EMS responders. Part-time employees and paid-per call firefighters are allowed to live both within and outside of North Liberty city limits. EMS responders must live within the fire district. We commonly engage in one large selection process each winter that will take new candidates through their firefighter I and Hazmat certifications, followed by Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training. However, if you are a credentialed and/or an experienced firefighter or EMS responder, there is a possibility that we would consider your application and selection off cycle.
