 This application and testing process will produce two eligibility hiring lists that will be used for entry-level hiring by the Aurora, Canby, Hubbard, Molalla, and Woodburn Fire Districts. One list will be comprised of EMTs and the other paramedics. Candidates will need to decide at the time of application which position they are testing for. Candidates that earn a spot on a hiring eligibility list will be considered for employment when entry-level vacancies occur at any of the five fire districts. In addition to the minimum qualifications listed for testing eligibility, each of the five districts have specific additional employment qualifications and/or scoring criteria that will be applied to the candidates in rank order on the eligibility lists. When an appointment is to be made, the top three candidates on the list, that meet the additional qualifications after all district-specific preference points are applied, will be invited to a chief’s interview with the district where the vacancy exists.
