Thank You for the overwhelming response to the Town of Gilbert Firefighter Recruitment!


This year we planned a Firefighter co-recruitment process with the City of Mesa Fire Department for the initial steps of the recruitment process.  The recruitment opened on April 25th at 8:00am and met the max total of 1,200 applicants by noon! Here is a link to the closed job posting:

Applicants who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited in the coming weeks to take the Written Exam on Tuesday, May 24th, 2016.  Further information will be provided to applicants by the City of Mesa recruitment and application system.
