[ARCHIVED] Firefighter recruitment seminar set for March 15

With a number of openings predicted over the next five years at the Hot Springs Fire Department, a firefighter recruitment seminar will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15 in the upstairs training room at the Central Fire Station, 310 Broadway. At the seminar, the life and duties of a firefighter will be described in detail by both experienced and rookie firefighters, followed by a question and answer session.

Newer disciplines like hazardous materials response, basic life support and swift water rescue have expanded the expertise and scope of operations of today’s firefighter. With a starting salary of $34,245 plus full benefits, firefighters work one day on, two days off, in a team-based environment that is challenging and rewarding.

 Men and women ages 21 to 34 at the time of testing may apply. There are some exceptions to the age rule in the case of paid firefighter applicants. Applicants must also have a high school diploma or GED, be a citizen of the United States, possess a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record, not have been convicted of a felony, and must be able to complete physical fitness and written examinations. Applications will be accepted until March 29. Detailed requirements are contained in an application packet available from the city’s Human Resources Department, 501-321-6841
