The Tiffin Fire/Rescue Division establishes its hiring list through the Civil Service Exam process. This is carried out in the fall of odd numbered years, 2017 being the next test. A public notice will be issued announcing the date of the written exam and how to obtain application materials. Applications will only be accepted for those who are at a minimum of 18 years of age, are certified in Ohio as a Professional Level Firefighter I & II (240), and are a Paramedic. For applicants who may currently be enrolled in a Paramedic program, you may still apply but must submit a letter from your program director stating you are currently enrolled, in good standing, and listing the expected completion date of the course. A passing score of 70% is required for further consideration. If your score is above 70% and for those with military experience producing a valid DD214 or who are Paramedics producing a valid Ohio certification, you will receive an additional 10 bonus points on the exam. Not more than 10 points can be earned. For those who pass the written exam, you will be invited to the next step, the firefighter agility test. This test is a pass/fail and replicates many of the tasks we are required to perform while at a fire scene. More detail will be provided to the candidates before the agility test. Those successfully completing the firefighter agility test will be ranked by their written test score and military and Paramedic certification bonus points to determine the official hiring list, certified by the City of Tiffin’s Civil Service Committee.
