    Yes, you can. On my department alone are two Firefighters that are not citizens. Just sign up for a exam and take the test. Good Luck.

    As long as you can work legally as a resident alien you can be a firefighter. It can be tough to become a resident alien JUST to become a firefighter, first you will need to get here LEGALLY and hold legitimate employment.

    You'll need a green card, although someplaces still require US Citizenship.

    My department does not require citizenship. I also know of a candidate who just got hired on another department who was not a US citizen.
