How do I become a Fargo firefighter?

We are often asked how to become a Fargo Firefighter. For the most complete answer, please check our Careers page.

Can I have a campfire (recreational fire) in my yard? I would like to sit around it with the family, sing songs and roast marshmallows.

Yes, if you follow the recreational fire rules

My smoke detector is beeping and there isn't any fire. What's wrong?

The detector may be full of dust and lint. Try cleaning it out with a vacuum cleaner.

The detector may also sound from triggers other than just smoke. Aerosol products may trigger detectors or steam from a shower may also cause a detector to sound.

Finally, the battery or detector may be wearing out. The life expectancy of a smoke detector is 7-10 years; it may be time to replace yours.
