The next selection process for entry-level H-2 Firefighter with the San Francisco Fire Department is tentatively scheduled for 2014.
To receive notification and details of next entry-level H-2 Firefighter selection process, you must submit an interest card by doing the following:
- Log onto: www.jobaps.com/sf
- Select: "Notify Me of New Jobs"
- Select the letter: "F", and then select the job description: "H002 - Firefighter"
- On the top of the page, select: "Email Me when a Job Opens for the above position(s)"

All interest card submissions are received by the City and County of San Francisco's Department of Human Resources (DHR); they do not go to the San Francisco Fire Department. The job notification database with the Department of Human Resources only keeps records for one year. If you do not receive notification from DHR after one year, you will need to resubmit another interest card. You will also need to resubmit another interest card if you change your email address.
The minimum requirements from the previous selection process are described below. For the next selection process, these requirements may change:
Applicants must be at least 19 years of age (no maximum age limit) and possess a high school diploma or GED. Applicants who pass the written test are placed on an eligible list. This is the list the SFFD will use to hire new firefighters. Applicants considered for an academy class are required to have an EMT-1 certificate (issued by the State of California or National Registry) and CPAT (Candidate Physical Ability Test) certificate to pass the background investigation process. The CPAT website is http://www.cffjac.org/go/jac/cpat. Applicants who successfully complete the background and medical exam process are eligible to attend the SFFD Fire Academy.
