Message From The Chief

Becoming a Tyler Firefighter is one of the most rewarding things that you can do. If you have ever considered becoming a Tyler Firefighter, you must fulfill a few basic requirements. One of the requirements is that you must possess a current Basic Structural Firefighter Certification through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP). The first step in this process is attending the Fire Academy.

The next Tyler Junior College Fire Academy is scheduled to begin February 8, 2016. To attend, you must be registered by Friday, January 29th. If you did not make it into this Academy, I do hope that you will consider signing up for the next Fire Academy, which is anticipated to begin in August, 2016. For more information about the Fire Academy click the Fire Training link. 

The next Tyler Fire Department Entrance Exam will be scheduled for late June or early July, 2016. Please refer to the Recruiting tab for a full list of the basic requirements to become a Tyler Firefighter. 

If you have any questions, feel free to call or stop by our Fire Administration Office.

Stay Safe,
Chief Johnson
