Part-Time Firefighter/Paramedic Testing Process

McHenry Township Fire Protection District

Part-Time Firefighter/Firefighter-Paramedic Lateral and Regular Hiring Process

The McHenry Township Fire Protection District (MTFPD) is conducting ongoing testing to develop a pool of candidates for the position of Part-Time Firefighter/Firefighter Paramedic. 

Testing is being done for both Lateral Hiring (individuals who are currently Firefighter/Paramedics with at least 3 years of fire service experience) and 

Regular hiring (individuals who do not meet that requirement). 

 As needed the MTFPD will contact individuals from the pool of candidates to participate in the remainder of the testing process and complete an application for employment.  Applications will be made available during specific recruitment periods.

The application period for the Summer 2020 testing and hiring process is now closed.   Those candidates that meet the requirements to attend the August 10 orientation session will be contacted via email.  We anticipate beginning the next testing and hiring cycle in Spring 2021. 

 The McHenry Township Fire Protection District utilizes the National Testing Network (NTN) for the written portion of the testing process (FireTeam test). The testing can be completed at any one of NTN’s Testing Centers.  For more information about the National Testing Network and to sign up for testing, visit the following link:  

There is a $50 one-time application fee to establish an account with the National Testing Network. Candidates who have financial hardship can apply for assistance through NTN.
