2023 Fire Department Hiring Projections

​Below are the anticipated hiring needs and timeline for participating Fire Departments.  Projected times below are estimates only and each FD reserves the right to amend hiring timelines as the need arises.

As always, candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as they are eligible to ensure they are included in the next round of interviews.  Participating Fire Departments will do their best to update this table but may need to find candidates with little to no notice, therefore applying early is recommended.

Please contact the Hiring Process Coordinator Jeff Dykes with any questions and/or concerns.
