Wichita Falls Fire Dept. opens search for firefighters

WICHITA FALLS--The Wichita Falls fire department has a handful of openings coming up.  In the past, they've had as many as 300 candidates turn out and they hope this month's response can top those numbers. 

This year, they're looking to hire 14 firefighters.  Future firefighters go through a 4-part test.  It begins with a written exam.  Then, if they pass that, it's onto the physical part of the test.  Once you get past that, it's on to a general interview and the last part is an interview with the chief himself.  

Candidates who successfully navigate the test then go through a 27-week training academy.

Applications will be accepted through June 13th.  The initial test will be given June 16th.  For more information, you can contact the Wichita Falls human resources department at 940-761-7615, or go to their website at www.cwftx.net.
