Thank you for your interest.

We are always looking for motivated men and women to join us in providing the citizens and businesses of the Louisville Fire Protection District with fire protection and emergency services.

The mandatory criteria for becoming a recruit for the Louisville Fire Protection District are:

  • you must be at least 18 years of age
  • you must be a legal resident of the United States of America
  • you must have a valid driver's license
  • you must have current automobile insurance, if you drive
  • you must successfully complete our screening process

Preference will be given to applicants residing within the district (district map), but we will gladly consider applicants living out of district who are able to meet the membership requirements.

Volunteering for the Louisville Fire Department can be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of your life. You will be driven to find strength and courage you may not think you have, and in turn you will be given the training and opportunity to make a direct and positive impact on people’s lives. You will get the chance to be somebody’s hero.

You will receive training and experience that will mean greater welfare for your families, friends and neighbors. You will make friends and establish a social network made up of the finest people in the community. You will develop stronger ties to the community. Perhaps best of all, you will get to live out childhood fantasies and ride on the big red truck.

If you are interested, you can download an application or pick one up from Station 2, 895 W. Via Appia. Bring the completed application to Station 2 or FAX it to (303) 666-7659. We accept applications throughout the year for inclusion into our next available recruit class. Highly qualified candidates may be included midyear at the discretion of the Chief.
