(Fargo, ND) -- The Fargo Fire Department is accepting applications for prospective first responders in our area. 

Fargo Fire Division Chief Craig Nelson joined WDAY Radio's Bonnie and Friends to speak on the need for more firefighters. He says now is the time to apply for the position, because the department only seeks interested persons once a year. 

"Our application period is open for three weeks once a year, and its currently open right now, "said Chief Nelson, "We are taking applications. We take those applicants and test them, and those that pass we create a list from. That is where we hire off of for the whole upcoming year."
