North Park Fire's next recruit academy starts in August (on weekends), with a fire department orientation session in June. Why should you consider North Park Fire? Here's some reasons:

-- Are you interested in joining a busy part-time and volunteer department to get real-world experience, training and certifications (and Rock Valley College fire science tuition assistance) as you pursue your career to become a full-time career firefighter?

--Are you a servant leader looking to give something back to your community and help your neighbors? There is no better way to serve others than as a firefighter and emergency medical technician and helping your neighbors on what is likely their worst day.

--Lastly - are you looking for inclusion into a family atmosphere like nothing else? If you're a member of North Park Fire, your fellow brother and sister firefighters become a second family. Plus North Park prides itself on family inclusion, with holiday parties, summer picnics, baseball outings and more. The fire service family is an incredible benefit to being a North Park firefighter.

If any of this has your interest, please consider attending our orientation session. We'd love to have you join our ranks and build on the tradition of those that formed North Park Fire and carry on their legacy. Please send us a private message here, call the office at 815-636-3051 or email npfd@npfpd.org for more information.

Happy International Firefighters Day to all of our current firefighters and EMTs, as well as all that have served North Park before us. 2022 marks 75 years of service to our community as even though the district was formed in 1946, our first apparatus was delivered in 1947 and members soon started running calls.
