We are currently accepting applications for VOLUNTEERS!
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH.
INTERVIEWS WILL BE SCHEDULED FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER WITH THE TRAINING ACADEMY BEGINNING IN JANUARY 2018.
Through weekly classroom and hands on training, quarterly live fire evolutions and one on one instructor training, we offer Firefighter I & II certifications through the State Firemen's and Firemarshals' Association of Texas. We have ten certified instructors to assist in this process as well as many experienced firefighters.
How it works: You can download and complete an application directly from this website and return it by email or you are welcome to come by the station Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm and pick an application up. After you submit your application it will be reviewed and you will be contacted for an initial interview. If you are selected for Probationary membership as a Trainee, you will spend a minimum of 6 months attending lecture classes and hands-on training. Only after passing a written exam, live fire evolutions, and a skills proficiency with department tools and equipment will you be cleared to begin responding to emergency calls.
