Thank you for showing your interest in desiring to become a part of the Grand Rapids Fire Department Team! Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting applications for employment.
We will likely be hiring firefighters this fall. The candidates this fall will be selected from the eligible list that is currently in effect. If we move forward in that manner, those candidates whom are eligible will be notified when the time comes.
The next time we anticipate testing for the position of firefighter will likely be the spring or summer of 2019. If we do, and how many, will be determined by current employee retirements and departures. The best way to monitor this is to keep an eye on the City of Grand Rapids Human Resources Department.
We encourage you to check this website at least once a month.
In the meantime, take a look at the qualifications, process, and requirements on this page. That way you'll be ready to go and well prepared when we start our hiring process!
Again, we thank you for taking an interest in working for the Grand Rapids Fire Department!
