Want To Be a Firefighter? Montgomery County Seeks Applicants

No previous fire-fighting experience is required.


Have you dreamed about being a firefighter since you were little?

The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service would like to help you fulfill your dream.

Are you:

  • At least 17-and-a-half years old?
  • A U.S. citizen or permanent resident?
  • A high school graduate or a GED holder?
  • A driver with a valid license?

If you answered "yes" to all of the above questions, you qualify to apply to become a Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service firefighter/rescuer.

MCFRS announced on their Facebook page that they are planning to accept applications May 1-17. Applicants must create an account and submit their application on the Montgomery County government website.

No prior firefighting experience is required, but applicants will be required to pass both a written exam and the Candidate Physical Ability Test. Applicants also must pass a medical exam and background investigation and receive a successful score during the oral interview process.

Learn more about firefighter opportunities by speaking with an MCFRS recruiter, who will be at the Starbucks on Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday.

MCFRS will host additional recruiting sessions throughout the county over the next few weeks. To find other locations, visit the MCFRS website. Or suggest a recruiting location via MCFRS’s email address: fire.recruiting@montgomerycountymd.gov
