About Volunteering

updated: Wednesday, November 30, 2016

By volunteering for the City of St. Louis Park, not only will you have a direct impact on the community, but you will also have access to the benefits that our volunteers gain from donating their time and talents. Here are a few reasons our volunteers feel rewarded:
  • Meet people who share your interests
  • Gain skills and experience for employment opportunities
  • Explore new career areas & practice a new skill
  • Earn school credit
  • Set a positive example for others
Current city volunteer opportunities are posted below. Additionally, there are occasional volunteer opportunities available to St. Louis Park residents administered by an outside entity, such as the county, a nonprofit organization, or the local school district. List of those opportunities.
 
How to volunteer:
To apply for a City of St. Louis Park volunteer opportunity, fill out this application form. The volunteer office will then contact you about next steps. To volunteer for a position outside of the City of St. Louis Park, please reach out to the contact person listed in the description.

Hydrant Hero

updated: Thursday, September 01, 2016

The St. Louis Park Fire Department would like to remind homeowners and businesses with fire hydrants on (or near) their property to please shovel the snow around the fire hydrant after each snowfall and keep the hydrant clear of overgrowth of plants during the summer.

There are about 1,700 fire hydrants in St. Louis Park, and while we will have a crew of firefighters removing the snow, they cannot clean all of them in a timely manner. Protect your family and neighbors when seconds count by becoming a Hydrant Hero!

To adopt a hydrant, go to hydranthero.org. Choose a hydrant, click on the “Adopt me” link, and fill out the registration form – you can even give your hydrant a name!

Questions can be directed to Assistant Chief Cary Smith at 952.924.2171 or Lieutenant Eva Hansen at 952.924.2599.
