Join the Peoria Fire Department

Peoria Fire Department is opening up the Firefighter testing process. Each year, a list of candidates is generated with the sole purpose of hiring qualified applicants to join our spring and fall Academy Classes. The number of candidates hired depends on movement within the department such as retirements, promotions, and budget allocations. The highly competitive process involves filling out an employment application, followed by our Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) and is finalized by completing a written test. Once the initial steps are completed, the hiring list is established for future hiring opportunities.
