Gulfport Fire Department looking for new recruits
Looking for employment? Here’s a hot job offer! The Gulfport Fire Department is looking for ten new recruits.
If you’re interested check out the City of Gulfport’s website and you’ll find the listing under the employment tab. They’ll have a written exam this Wednesday night at 5:30. If you pass that, you move on to the next step which is the physical test.
You’ll also have to go through background checks and oral interviews. If you meet all the requirements, you’ll be in their next recruit class and take on the role of a future firefighter for the City of Gulfport.
At the station, it is 24 hours on and 48 hours off. Fire Chief Michael Beyerstedt shares with News 25 why he enjoys being a firefighter. “Giving back to the community is a big thing for me. Helping out people, it’s a good feeling, making a difference in someone’s life like that. This job gives you that opportunity every day.”
If you need more time to prepare yourself there is always next time. The fire department has quarterly recruit classes.
