Career Firefighter: CLOSED
Volunteer Firefighter: OPEN
McLane Black Lake Fire Department accepts applications for volunteer firefighter year round. The fire district sends candidates to the recruit academy in the spring and fall, and will contact applicants prior to confirm their interest. In addition to an application, candidates must pass a CPAT physical ability test. Those who are successful will be given a physical exam and drug screen prior to becoming a volunteer recruit.
Applicants with current firefighting experience may be considered as a lateral entry volunteer at the discretion of the Fire Chief and may not need to participate in the recruit academy. The CPAT physical ability test, physical exam and drug screen will still be required of lateral volunteers.
