Applications for our Recruit Firefighter pre-screening are now closed
Currently we are processing applications previously received. No further applications will be accepted in 2020. Please check back on this page for future competitions, possibly in 2021.
Becoming a firefighter is competitive and the pre-screening process has multiple steps with the online application being the first step. Only applicants that meet the minimum qualifications will be considered.
We have very high standards and we work hard to meet them in everything we do. These standards are evident in the ways we:
- Strive to build an applicant pool that reflects the diversity of the citizens we serve.
- Use an unbiased and rigorous pre-screening process to narrow the pool.
- Select only those candidates who show integrity and a passion for community service.
Role models and leaders
Our firefighters represent the Calgary Fire Department and The City of Calgary. They are role models and leaders within our organization and the community.
We pre-screen for individuals who take that responsibility very seriously and who pursue excellence in their daily activities.
