Those interested in joining the irving fire department can register for THE 2024 Firefighter test here

Approximately four weeks before the exam is to be given, registrants will be sent a letter/email containing information about the exam date, time, and place. Applicants must then sign and return a copy of this letter/email to be eligible to take the exam. Please set your spam blocker to allow emails from noreply@governmentjobs.com

Applicants who pass the exam will be placed on an eligibility list ranked by test score. If all conditions are met to become a firefighter with the City of Irving, positions are offered as vacancies arise. The eligibility list remains in effect for one year. Those wishing to be considered after the list expires must again register and take the next entrance examination.
