    Does anyone have any information on how the hiring process works in Greensboro? I can't find a whole lot of information on the hiring process for this city or how many they actually hire yearly?

    I work there, but I'm not in a position to "officially" answer any detailed questions. You can download the application online, and follow the directions found at this link:

    Application Process
    The Greensboro Fire Department takes applications throughout the year. You may apply at any time regardless of whether a Recruit Academy is starting. Once you complete your application and complete Steps 1-4, you remain in the applicant pool until your application expires (one year after the end of the period in which your application was accepted), or until you have been contacted for a position within the Department, contingent upon successfully passing a background check, medical physical and drug screen. Please read below for more information about the application process.

    pdf version of Application

    If you have anymore detailed questions, direct them to the Training Staff here.

    Does anyone have further information regarding how Greensboro operates, as a department (i.e. Aggressive, proactive fire attack, Ladder Ops, etc.), call volume and/or ratio of EMS to fire calls? Any info would be great.

    One of the best aspects of our trade is learning how other departments run.

    Does anyone know if the fire department got their budget passed to hire 15 new recruits to staff the new fire station? Thanks for any information.

    I heard that the department will be having a recruit class some time in January. I'm not sure as to how many they will hire to fill it. This is my first year applying to Greensboro; can anyone provide any information about the process or about the department in general? thanks
