Fire/EMS Department Volunteer Opportunity

Pleasant Hill Fire Department

The Pleasant Hill Fire Department operates with an authorized staffing of 45 members that are paid per call. All members of the department are cross-trained as firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics. The members of the Pleasant Hill Fire Department have a long history of service and excellence in the community.


If you are looking for a challenge and want to serve your community, we may have an opportunity for you. In order to be a volunteer you must: 

  • Be at least 18-years-old and graduated from high school.
  • Be in good health and able to pass a physical examination.
  • Live within five minutes of the fire station, when driving the posted speed limit.
  • Possess a valid Iowa driver’s license and maintain a good driving record.

If you meet the above qualifications we would encourage you to complete an online application and EEOS Form or pick one up from City Hall, located at 5160 Maple Drive. Applications are reviewed routinely and driving records are checked. Applicants meeting the above criteria will be interviewed by the membership committee and advised of the inner-workings of the department and expectations of our volunteers.
