Reminder: Interested applicants must submit an application and resume to the Rolla Rural Fire Protection District,C/O Firefighter Application, P.O. Box 1254, Rolla MO 65402 any other form will not be accepted.
The Rolla Rural Fire Protection District is progressively moving forward to better serve our community. In April 2016 a sales tax increase was passed with the idea that the department would hire full time firefighters to work alongside the already established, hard working volunteers.
After a lot of work, the department has gotten this accomplished with nine full-time firefighters. To continue to serve the district in the best way possible, we are looking for certified, experienced, hard working individuals to apply and test for 1 firefighter position as well as a hiring list in case positions come open in the future. In doing so, this will speed up the process in filling vacancies if they are to arise. The hiring list process in place includes a written examination, physical agility test as well as an oral interview. This process will test the firefighter’s knowledge, physical ability as well as their communication skills.
We will be accepting applications, accompanied with resumes for two weeks starting August 21, 2018 until September 04, 2018. The applicants need to follow ALL instructions listed on the Application and Hiring Process Form.
Application packets are also available in paper form at The Rolla Rural Fire Protection District, Station 1 which is located at 1575 East Lions Club Drive, Rolla, MO. If anyone has any questions in regards to these positions or this process, please contact The Rolla Rural Fire Protection District, Station 1 at 573-341-2211 and ask for Fire Chief Roger Hayes.
I look forward to meeting and speaking with you!
