The Mequon Fire Department is looking for three interns to make a one or two year commitment to work a rotating 24-hour schedule (ten shifts per month) and work alongside our current members performing firefighting and emergency medical services in the community.

Accommodations will be made to allow interns time to attend any classes.

In return for volunteering, the intern will receive an invaluable work experience, along with $500 per month for living expenses. The intern will also be offered sponsorship in EMT-Basic as well other State of Wisconsin fire certification classes. An intern signing on for two years will be offered sponsorship in Paramedic training during the second year.

Who are we looking for?

  • Students who are FFI Certified and are looking to begin a career in the fire service
  • Students wanting to further their education and gain related work experience
  • Students willing to make a one(or two)year commitment on our team
  • Students motivated to become part of our organization
