Application Tips

Written Test

Applicants who attended the mandatory CPAT orientation are eligible to take the written examination and must self-schedule an appointment following the instructions provided on the job announcement.

Applicants must pass the written examination with a minimum score of 70 to continue in the hiring process. The written exam is managed through a third party, which means your written test scores will not be provided to Fire & Rescue.

During this stage of the hiring process, applicants will also be required to sign a background authorization for release of information form. Applicants who fail to self-schedule, arrive late, or miss the mandatory written examination will automatically be eliminated from the hiring process.

The Online NFST or NFST-EMS Study Guide is available for purchase for $5 and the Online NFST-EMS or NFST Practice Test is $15. Click here for details.
