Frenchtown Fire District Resident Program

Interested in a career as a firefighter?

The Frenchtown Resident Program, located in the state of Montana, is a 3 year program designed to train, educate and prepare candidates for a career in emergency services, specifically Fire and Emergency services or FIRE/EMS. Program participants live in our stations at no cost and take part in an active demanding training and education schedule. This is done while serving the Frenchtown Fire District through regularly scheduled volunteer shifts as an active first responder throughout the 3 year commitment. During the first year, residents are heavily involved in hands on FIRE/EMS training that consists of Structure and Wildland Firefighter certification along with EMT certification and ambulance operations. During the second and third years, residents continue to work their scheduled shifts in addition to taking classes to earn an Associate of Science Degree in Fire and Emergency Services. Tuition costs are initially the responsibility of the student. However, upon successful program completion and graduation, 100% of the tuition (including books and required materials) will be reimbursed to the student. For any questions, please contact Lt. Schnee at the contact info below.

Currently we are accepting applications for early graduates (January 2024 Program start as well as Spring graduates (August 2024 Program Start).
