Fire Department

Do you still want to be a firefighter?

Do you remember when as a child wanting to be a fireman?  Or as a little girl, were you disappointed when you were told you couldn't be a fireman because you were a girl?  Well, it's not too late!  Most of the firefighters in the United States are what you think of as volunteers. They come from all walks of life, and include many women!

The Pipestone, Berrien Twps., Eau Claire Fire Department is actually a "paid-on-call" department and not a "volunteer" type.  This distinction means that our firefighters are paid an hourly wage.

As our lives become more complicated; finding people willing to serve their community as a firefighter has become quite difficult.  It is especially difficult to find firefighters available during the daytime.  With the loss of factor/shift work in the area, our daytime responders are very low.

If you have any desire to help your neighbors, to help keep the cost of your fire protection as low as possible; come see us.  We provide the training you need and the equipment that is required.  All you need to supply is a willingness to fulfill that dream you had while you were a little kid, (and some time).

If you are interested call the station on Friday afternoons 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.  We will explain what is involved and start you on a path that will provide you with a tremendous amount of pride and satisfaction.  Our phone number is 269-461-3406.
