Recruitment Process - CLOSED

Next year's application process will open in November.


The Student Firefighter program is very important to Redmond Fire & Rescue. Students are assigned to work side by side with career personnel while attending classes at Central Oregon Community College. The Student program is a THREE year dual degree program with the student completing the requirements to earn AAS degrees in Structural Fire Science and EMS upon completion. Students earn a $1000 per term scholarship through a testing process, with a total of 9 student positions. The scholarship can be used toward your tuition and books.  The Joint Recruitment Process is offered each year in March, April, or May with the appointment beginning July 1st. Redmond Fire & Rescue does not currently offer a resident program. 


Selection is made through participation in the Central Oregon Joint Scholarship Recruitment Testing process.  Selection and scholarship awards will be made by the fire agencies as a collaborative effort. Redmond Fire & Rescue will hold a selection interview process after receiving a list of eligible candidates from the Joint Recruitment Testing Process. Completion of a second Physical Ability Test (CPAT) may be required. For more information about the COCC program and the Central Oregon Joint Scholarship Recruitment Testing process please visit their website: COCC AAS in Structural Fire Science.
