Becoming a paid Firefighter
Join the Team
Since 1960, men and women from all walks of life have proudly served the Plymouth Fire Department, where members discover daily accomplishment and comradery in a highly professional and progressive organization.
There is tremendous satisfaction in saving a life, controlling a fire, comforting an accident victim and teaching skills that prevent disaster and injury. Becoming a paid-on-call firefighter may be one of the most personally rewarding things an individual can do – and Plymouth wants to know if you’re up to the challenge.
The hiring process for paid-on-call firefighters is typically conducted on an annual basis. The hiring process for new firefighter recruits is comprehensive and takes several months to complete, but the achievements last a lifetime.
The hiring process for 2016 has closed. Paid-on-call firefighters are typically hired on an annual basis in late spring/early summer. Please check back for future openings.
