Testing

Those interested in becoming a firefighter for the City of Irving must register to take an entrance examination. The Fire Department entrance exam is usually given once a year. The next Firefighter Entrance Examination has been re-scheduled for Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. at the Irving Convention Center. Recommended arrival is 1-1 1/2 hours before, to facilitate processing. If you previously registered to take the exam for September 28, you will receive an email and phone call with the updated information. Walk-ins will be welcomed for this examination on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have served in the military you must have your DD-214 with you to earn military points.

Registration is currently closed but will be opening for the 2018 entrance examination in November. If you previously registered online and would like to confirm, call (972) 721-2696 or stop by Human Resources located at:  

City Hall Third Floor
825 W. Irving Blvd.
Irving, TX 75060

Approximately four weeks before the exam is to be given, registrants will be sent a letter containing information about the exam date, time, and place. Applicants must then sign and return a copy of this letter to be eligible to take the exam.

Applicants who pass the exam will be placed on an eligibility list ranked by test score. If all conditions are met to become a firefighter with the City of Irving, positions are offered as vacancies arise. The eligibility list remains in effect for one year. Those wishing to be considered after the list expires must again register and take the next entrance examination.

For more information about becoming an Irving firefighter, call Human Resources at (972) 721‑2696, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
