East Jefferson Fire-Rescue sets volunteer firefighter testing for applicants

PORT TOWNSEND — East Jefferson Fire-Rescue will test applicants for volunteer and volunteer resident firefighter positions Wednesday, Jan. 29.

Testing will be conducted at East Jefferson Fire-Rescue Station 1-5 at 35 Critter Lane.

Interested volunteers must submit a completed application by noon Friday, Jan. 24.

In-district residency is not required.

The testing includes a written exam, a physical agility test and an interview.

A practice agility exam will be administered to interested applicants Monday, Jan. 27.

Positions to fill

Volunteers can fulfill a variety of roles with the department, including firefighting, station maintenance, public education, tender operations and EMS response.

Volunteer resident firefighters typically join the department in pursuit of a career in the fire service.

EJFR pays for their training to become IFSAC Firefighter I and National Registry Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-B) certified.

Residents usually work a 48-hour per week shift alongside career firefighters and receive a monthly stipend.

The fire district also will coordinate and pay for EMT certification for volunteers interested only in EMS duties.
