Below is an e-mail we received today.
Hello and thank you for your interest in the Austin Fire Department. We
are currently developing new tools to communicate with potential
applicants for the position of Fire Cadet. One new feature will allow
potential applicants to enter contact information and receive automatic
updates on the Fire Cadet Employment process. A link to this feature
will be available on the recruiting website as well as the employment
We anticipate conducting a Fire Cadet Employment process later this year
and hope to begin Cadet training in 2011. The collective bargaining
agreement between the City of Austin and the Austin Firefighters
Association includes development of a new employment process for entry
level firefighters (Fire Cadets) and for the first time, we will be able
to hire lateral firefighters.
Specific information on the qualifications, application process and
employment selection components for both traditional and lateral hires
will be posted on our websites when available.
Please continue to visit our websites and take advantage of the new
communication tools as they become available.
