The initial testing process will consist of two primary components: a traditional firefighter examination and a situational judgment test. Both will be administered in a paper-and-pencil format. The firefighter exam will assess job-related cognitive abilities, personality characteristics and behavioral traits. The situational judgment test may assess job-related skills associated with conflict resolutions, service orientation, initiative, integrity, team-orientation, and others. You do not need to have any firefighter experience, training or knowledge to successfully complete these tests. An orientation will be provided immediately prior to the administration of the tests to provide further information regarding the testing process.
