Entry Level Firefighter Exam

Over the past two days, candidates for entry level firefighter positions have been hard at work completing the written test phase of the application process.  Designed to establish an eligibility list, the written exam is only one part in a series of steps taken to join the ranks of TFD.  Nearly 3,000 applications were received, and most attended one of 4 testing sessions held at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall.  This eligibility list will be used to fill TFD's vacant positions for the next couple of years. However, it is not yet been determined when the next recruit class will be hired.

"We are always looking for ambitious, energetic and diverse candidates to strengthen our department," said Assistant Chief Jolene Davis.
