Welcome to the 2016 Regional Fire Department Hiring Process


This year’s hiring process is completely paperless. Please review the material contained on this website to ensure a successful application. If you have any questions pertaining to the hiring process or the CPAT exam, please contact us.

​Understand the Requirements

​Prepare & Scan Required Materials

All certifications, licensures, and documents are highly encouraged to be scanned so they can be attached to your application. You will need to scan and save your documents prior to starting your application. If you do not scan and attach your documents, a department may request hard copies of them later in the process.

Documents to scan:

  • State Driver’s License

  • DD214 if you are claiming Veterans Preference

  • Resume

  • Proof of certifications and licensures

  • Any other employment related documents

Set Aside Some Time​

The application is very detailed. You will be able to save your application and come back at a later date to finish it. However,  once you submit your application, you will not be able to revise or alter the information. Make sure the application is filled out completely and accurately before submitting.

​Have Access to a Printer Before You Start

It is highly recommended that you print your application for your records. You will be given the opportunity to print the application after submitting.
