2022 Engineer Promotional Testing
The Engineer position is a great step for our department and a career step for those qualified, looking to advance. The first Engineers testing will take place on the week of March 21, 2022. This test will establish a list of eligible candidates to establish the first 6 career Engineer positions for JHFEMS. If there are eligible candidates beyond the 6 filled positions, this test will create an Engineer promotional list that will be kept for one year.
For the purpose of the June 5, 2022 bid, Engineers will bid based upon rank on the promotional list. Engineer will be its own category in Section IV of the Operational Shift Personnel Guidelines. Future Engineer position bids will be based on the date of promotion.
Applications may be submitted in person or by email to Kelli Hardwick. Applications are available on the department website under the members tab. Please submit application, resume and letters of recommendation by February 18, 2022 at 5:00 pm.
Since this is a promotional testing opportunity and not a hiring opportunity, only full-time Ops Staff will be considered.
Candidates must have at least 3 years of experience in the Fire Service.
Candidates must be Wyoming ADO-P certified, with the ability to obtain Wyoming ADO-A within 2 years or first available opportunity with the department. If the candidate does not have ADO-A certification, a Truck 16 task book must be initiated prior to testing.
Candidates must have a Wyoming Class-B license, or equivalent.
Candidates will be ranked by composite score. The composite score is the sum of the points obtained by an individual in each examination component. Maximum composite score is 100 points. After the final scores the chief will conduct a personal interview with each candidate. Additional factors such as leadership, attitude and fit for the position will be considered.
