infographic that says "Community Members Needed" with picture of a MFD recruit class in the backgroundThe Madison Fire Department seeks community members to serve on our upcoming Firefighter/EMT interview panels. It’s our way of giving voice to the community as we seek the best possible individuals to serve our city as a member of the fire department.

As a community member on our interview panel, you will be paired with a chief officer and a member of Fire Fighters Local 311 (an active-duty firefighter/EMT or firefighter/paramedic).

Interviews take place August 1, 2, 3, and 4, 2023 from 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center. Continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and refreshments will be provided daily.

For process consistency, we prefer that community members join us all four days; however, we may be able to work with you to accommodate schedule conflicts.

If interested or have questions, please contact us at We will respond to interested community members with more information in mid-July.
