Open Written Test Weekend for Firefighter Recruit

Hello Facebook Family, Friends, and Fans!

We are deciding to try something a little different to improve our recruiting and applicant process.  With each passing year, it is becoming more difficult to recruit applicants for a job that takes a special calling. Therefore, we are going to try a different approach by having an Open Test Weekend; October 15th - 17th, 2021.  

What are the requirements to take the OPEN written test?

  • Must be between the ages of 19 and 50 years old.
  • Must have a valid driver's license or state-approved picture ID.
  • Must sign up/register for one of the available times for the written test.
  • Must be a citizen of the United States or have documentation of eligibility.

If you pass the written test with a 70% or above, you will be requested to complete an application to continue the hiring process. 

IF you would like to register for the OPEN written test WEEKEND please register at the following link:  You must register by October 4th, 2021.  We will need to order the test in advance and need a headcount.
