Candidates will have the opportunity to test with PF&R for the positions of Firefighter Trainee and Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic in 2011. Candidates with little or no fire service experience are encouraged to apply for the Firefighter Trainee Program. Applicants with fire service experience and who hold a minimum of an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) certification are encouraged to apply for the Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic exam.
