    Default Mt. Vernon Fire Department Testing

    The City of Mt. Vernon will be testing this year. The test date is September 13 and application packets should be available by Monday.

    MVFD is a totally career department. 24/48 work schedule. We have 27 guys on shift. We run non-transport ALS and all members with the exception of captains are required to be paramedics (you don't have to be a medic to test though). We average around 2500 calls/year, but we'll get more than that this year.

    Mt. Vernon has been a slow growing community over the last several years, but with a new city council and mayor, a lot is being done in the way of growth and we expect some decent growth in the near future. The City's website is http://www.mtvernon.com

    For more information, visit http://www.mvfd.mtvernon.com for the official department website. Or you can visit http://www.iafflocal738.org for the Union's website.

    I hope that remark was meant in the way I think!

    I know you'll test. Good Luck, sincerely.

    Of course it was Chief! Hell, if it weren't for the Boczek clan, I wouldn't be in this business!

    I would be sad to leave, but I'd be equally happy to start a full time career in the fire service. Let's hope I can turn in a good showing come test time!
