(Las Vegas, NV) — Five local governments are launching an interagency regional recruitment drive for citizens interested in becoming firefighters with their area fire departments.
The partners in this first-of-its kind regional recruitment drive include the Las Vegas Fire and Rescue Department, Clark County’s Fire Department, and the North Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City Fire Departments. Job seekers interested in a fire service career with one of the participating agencies can visit www.snvfirerecruitment.com to learn more about the recruitment effort and apply for jobs.
Applications will be accepted online only through the website beginning Monday, Oct. 27, through Wednesday, Nov. 26. The city of Las Vegas is hosting the website and will forward applications to partnering agencies. The candidates who successfully complete the application and testing process, will be forwarded to fire departments for consideration as openings occur within their departments for the next year.
