The Branford Fire Department in conjunction with multiple fire agencies within the state of Connecticut area are seeking applicants to establish eligibility lists for the position of Firefighter. These departments will be testing as a consortium and one application will grant applicants the ability to apply to all departments. State of Connecticut Firefighter Testing Consortium applications will be available until Friday, June 1, 2018.

Apply though IOSOLUTIONS.com here Test dates will be scheduled for the week of June 16-23rd. Locations to be announced.

Local Fire Chiefs, through the CT Career Fire Chiefs Association, are offering a single testing process for candidates to apply and compete for firefighter positions in 11 Fire Departments.  The Chiefs have collectively contracted with a national testing company, IO Solutions, to test candidates for entry level positions. Now, for the first time, applicants can take a single exam to qualify for career opportunities in any of the departments which they meet the minimum qualifications.

Fire Departments have recognized that attracting the best candidates was expensive and time consuming for both for the municipalities and the applicants as well. This statewide approach to testing will save departments thousands in contract fees and countless hours in test administration. Additionally, it has been long recognized that applicants are testing in multiple communities; so the administration of a statewide test is a logical solution for the applicants as well. Applicants are paying local application fees taking time off from work and traveling long distances to compete for firefighting positions. The statewide test format eliminates that redundancy of those efforts and expenses.

The CT Career Fire Chiefs are committed to cost-effective solutions to our common problems. Statewide testing improves the testing process and reduces cost. This welcome budget and administrative relief is an important part of the chiefs' commitment maintaining high quality emergencies services for our communities.

Participating Fire Departments: Branford, East Hartford, Farmington, Fairfield, Mansfield, North Haven, New Canaan, South Fire District Middletown, Westport, Wilton.

For more information about Branford's participation contact: Chief Thomas Mahoney (203) 488-7266.
