Firefighter Minimum Requirements:

  • High school diploma or equivalent (GED)* * The Board reserves the right to determine the sufficiency of the high school diploma or its equivalent
  • United States citizen
  • Valid driver's license
  • Must be 21 years of age and must not have reached your 35th birthday as of October 7th, 2022
  • A minimum of a valid EMT-B license issued by the Illinois Department of Public Health ("IDPH") as of October 7th, 2022 (Any license under suspension or review by the IDPH at the time of the close of applications shall be deemed to be an invalid license).
  • Certification as an EMT-P (paramedic) shall be required as a condition of continued employment for a firefighter. All original appointments to the fire department shall be for a probationary period of twelve (12) months, except that such probationary period may be extended for a firefighter until the firefighter is certified as an EMT-P. The sole reason that a firefighter may be discharged without a hearing is for failing to meet the requirements of such certification.
  • A valid CPAT (Candidate Physical Ability Test) with the application. CPATs are considered valid if dated 10/7/2021 – 10/7/2022.
  • Any applicant who has not been appointed to a firefighter position within one year after the date of his or her CPAT certification may be required to obtain another valid CPAT certificate prior to appointment. If such applicant fails to obtain a valid CPAT certification when required, the Board may allow such application to remain on the register one time only and select another applicant. If the applicant does not obtain a valid CPAT certification when offered employment again, the Board shall strike the applicant from the Register. Applicants bear the responsibility to submit a copy of the valid license and any other proof the Board requires. The Board reserves the right to strike or pass over a person on the list who does not possess a valid license at the time of appointment.
  • Residency is not required for this position
