Fire Job Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in testing for the City of Goshen Fire Department. We have a standardized process that we use to select the most qualified candidates.

The requirements for the City of Goshen Fire Department are as follows;

  1. You must be 21 years of age and not older then 36 years of age by the time you are hired.
  2. You must be an Indiana State Certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-Basic) by the time you are hired.
  3. You must have a valid Indiana driver’s license.
  4. You must have a High School diploma or GED.

 Being a Firefighter is very physically and mentally demanding. Please follow the following steps:

Step 1: Fill out an application, by either stopping by the Human Resource Department at 204 E. Jefferson St. Goshen, Indiana 46528, or filling out the online application. We test every year for a hiring pool that we will select qualified applicants out of for the following year. You will receive a letter, usually in mid-summer, to let you know when we will begin our testing.

Step 2: Is completion of a written test. The written test will evaluate your reading comprehension skills. Test preparation manuals are available to pick up at the human resources office.

Step 3: After obtaining a passing score on the written test, you will participate in the physical agility test. The physical agility test will evaluate your physical strength and endurance. 

Step 4: Is a comprehensive oral interview. You will be interviewed in front of the Fire Chief and members of our pension board. After this step, you will be ranked by a point system, and we will hire from this pool for the next year. You will not know the order in which you are ranked. If you are not selected and hired from the testing pool the next year, you will have to re-apply during the next testing process.

Currently we are accepting applications until Friday October 13th 2017 for the 2018 testing pool with the anticipation of hiring 3 in January 2018!

 Thank you for your time and good luck!
