Hiring Process Schedule – Fiscal Year 2019

The firefighter entrance exam was administered on November 27, 2018. The results of the exam will be posted no later than the third week of December.

Once the Eligibility List is posted on the Civil Service webpage, applicants will be notified via e-mail if they are within the hiring range and will be moving forward in the Hiring Process.

For those moving forward in the process, the schedule of hiring events is listed below. All dates and times are subject to change as situations may arise that are out of our control. Every effort will be made to notify those in the hiring process as soon as changes are identified.
