We are at it again... Little Axe Fire Department is activley recruiting motivated individuals to join

our progressive professional team. 


Our Priorities

We teach a simple set of priorities: Family, Job, Fire Department, in that order. 

However, it is worth mentioning that you should expect that there are times when they will

conflict and you will have to make the final choice. If you look at this as a part-time job that

you don’t get paid for, then you will find it much easier to find the balance and determine

whether you have the time to commit to the team. 


Looking for a new challenge? Here is just some of what we offer. 
  • Training provided
  • Equipment provided
  • Retirement pension
  • State Tax credit up to $400.00
  • AD&D Insurance
  • Workers Compensation Insurance
  • OSFA Membership
  • Tuition waivers available for dependent child education.
Why volunteer you ask? 
  • Joining the fire service as a volunteer is a great way to develop personal satisfaction and pride in helping others. 
  • You will have opportunities to help people in your community and surrounding areas. 
  • You will make new friendships and discover a brotherhood/sisterhood second to none. 
  • You will learn new skills that will carry over into your life and other work in the areas of leadership. 
  • Many that start as a volunteer continue on to become career firefighters. The training is the same and it carries over, as does up to five years of your retirement time. 


Minimum Requirements

  • Must be between 18-45 years of age
  • Must possess a valid driver’s license
  • Be in good physical health
  • No felony convictions
  • Willing to attend required training
  • Perform stressful work in often harsh or dangerous conditions
How to apply ? 
Easy, just go to our "Employment Application" on the home page menu on the left to get started. We're waiting for you. 
For those individuals still wanting to support the fire department and community by being a part of it without being a 
firefighter, be sure to consider joining our Auxiliary. We accept applications for the auxiliary from ages 16 and older.
