What is your hiring process?

The Fire Department is covered under Iowa Civil Service law. We generally will test for new hires at approximately 2-year intervals, unless we hire everyone off a list. The Civil Service Commission will certify a ranked list of candidates from which we hire. The process includes an application with a $15 fee, a written test, a physical agility test, and oral interviews. Candidates wishing to receive notifications for job postings should sign up for notifications through our website here.
