We never know exactly when we are going to hire again. To stay in the know, be sure to like us on and follow our Instagram at @JoinHuntsvilleFireandRescue for information and updates. You could also submit a job interest card for a reminder via email.
Standard hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; however, these times are subject to change based on the class or training that recruits are receiving at the time.
When you’ve successfully completed recruit (rookie) school, the hours change to 24 hours on and 48 hours off.
When determining the starting pay for lateral transfers, Huntsville Fire & Rescue looks at years of experience as well as what certifications will transfer over to our department.
