The recruitment process begins when an applicant completes a Volunteer Application Package and returns it to the Administration Office in person or by mail. Applications are reviewed to ensure they are completed with the necessary required information including a completed notary near the back of the application.
Applications are reviewed and if found to be complete, applicants are contacted and a panel interview is scheduled. The interview panel selects applicants to move forward to the testing phase. Applicants should consider starting to fill out a statement of personal history questionnaire for their background check.
The testing phase includes a physical ability test based on the specific position the applicant has applied for and a psychological screening test. Upon passing the physical ability testing a statement of personal history questionnaire will need to be submitted.
A thorough background investigation including but not limited to driving records, criminal history and review of your psychological screening test will take several weeks to complete. Upon completing the background check you will be directed to make an appointment with our occupational health and drug screening provider at our expense. Once you have completed your exam, you will be contacted to schedule your Fire Chief’s interview.
The Fire Chief’s interview is the final step in the application process. The Fire Chief will make the final determination of which applicants will move forward for affiliation, training and assignment.
