Becoming a Firefighter

One of the first steps is to complete a program from a school or fire academy certified through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP). Many of these schools can be located in your area by visiting the TCFP website.

To be eligible for application you must also have completed a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic course as required by the Texas Department of State Health Services and the National Registry for Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). You may enroll in a qualified EMS training program by contacting the Texas Department of State Health Services or by contacting the NREMT office for you state.


Submission & Review Process

Upon completion of required education, you can submit an application online or to the Missouri City Human Resources / Organizational Development Department:
1522 Texas Pkwy.
Missouri City, TX 77489

You will receive information regarding the next “test for new hire” date. Generally the test occurs yearly. Upon successful completion of a written test, you will move on to the physical performance evaluation. If you pass the physical evaluation, you will be given a background information packet to be filled out and turned into Missouri City Human Resources Department as soon as possible. If chosen, you will be called in for an oral interview with members of Missouri City Fire and Rescue Services Department. With approval you will be placed on an eligibility list which remains active until the list has been exhausted or for one year time.
