Who we are:
Leland Township is located along the western edge of Leelanau County, northwest of Traverse City, and is situated on the shores of Lake Michigan and portions of Lake Leelanau. The Leland Township Fire and Rescue provides service to the businesses, residents, guests, and visitors of the villages of Lake Leelanau and Leland – including the historic Fishtown. They respond on about 450 calls annually and provide Advanced Life Support services to the community.
The fire department has two stations; one in the village of Leland and one in the village of Lake Leelanau. We have two fire engines (511 & 512), a ladder truck (531), two tankers (521 & 522), two brush / grass fire trucks (541 & 542), two ambulances (591 & 592), a marine boat (573) and an assortment of other support vehicles.
The job is a challenging one. Firefighters are required to respond quickly and coordinate their activities as a team. Those activities often come together at the scene of a fire, medical, or rescue incident however firefighters often-times find themselves working in fire prevention, community service/ special event standby, training, equipment maintenance, hazardous material mitigations, and disaster response.
The job is also a demand physically, emotionally, and mentally. Firefighters typically carry over 80 lbs. of equipment (i.e.: axes, hoses, ladders, and chain saws) while climbing stairs, ground ladders or aerial ladders attached to the top of a fire truck. Firefighters work at heights or at spaces confined, dark, and at extreme temperatures. What firefighters see and do can cause tolls physically, emotionally, and mentally (as mentioned above) therefore we send an applicant through a series of examinations.
If you can be counted on in an emergency, work well within a team, have strong physical and mental stamina, and can get along with members of different social, economical, and ethnic classes you may be just what we are looking for.
The requirements to be considered for employment are:
- Reside within 15 miles of the Leelanau County border (i.e.: obviously we’d prefer if you live in Leelanau County but you may live close to Leelanau County in Benzie or Grand Traverse Counties)
- Minimum 18 years old
- Good driving history
- Good work history
- Clean criminal history
- Physically and mentally fit
- Possession of a High School diploma or the equivalent
- Licensed by the State of Michigan as a EMT (or able to acquire within two years)
- Michigan Firefighter I and Firefighter II (or able to acquire within two years)
- Michigan – Office of Firefighter Training (OFFT) Hazardous Materials Operations level (or able to acquire within two years)
Experience: Experience as an EMT and Firefighter preferred.
