    Default Austin, Texas Fire Exam

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On December 17, 2009 the Austin City Council approved a collective bargaining agreement between the City of Austin and Austin Firefighters Association. This agreement includes a new hiring process for entry level firefighters (Fire Cadets) and for the first time, we will be able to hire lateral firefighters. We expect it will be Spring 2010 before we have specific information regarding qualifications, application and exam components for both the entry level and lateral hiring processes. Additional information will be posted on this website when it is available.

    Thank you for your interest in employment with the Austin Fire Department. The Cadet Hiring section is responsible for the administration of all pre-employment tests that applicants must pass prior to being considered for hire. We work with applicants through the entire hiring process from application to placement on the eligibility list and hire into the Cadet Class.

    The Fire Cadet Hiring Process web page is the official source for information on AFDs hiring process. Once our future hiring needs are identified, we will begin planning for the next hiring process. This web page will be updated when new information is available.

    The Austin Fire Cadet Hiring Process is subject to guidelines established by State Civil Service Law and requirements set forth in a collective bargaining agreement with the Austin Firefighters Association (IAFF Local 975) in existence at the time. Specific information on the Hiring Process will be posted on this web page when available.

    Question

    I've heard nothing but good things about Austin FD. Are there any brother firefighters from Austin that can post more information about the department? I have done a good bit of research on the department, but I always like to hear from the guys on the ground.

    Stay safe.

    Their website states "It's harder then getting into Harvard!" That should say enough about how many apply!
