January 7th 2020 - BOSTON – State Representative David K. Muradian, Jr. (R-Grafton), is excited to announce that applications for the 2020 Municipal Firefighter examination are now being accepted online at MASS.GOV/CivilService. Applicants must apply by February 18th to sit for the March 21st exam.
As we are aware, a firefighter’s job is not easy. These men and women put their life on the line time and time again to help assist those in need. They perform physically demanding, and often dangerous tasks on a daily basis in times of emergency. The Municipal Firefighter examination will determine applicants who are eligible for appointments in cities and towns covered by the Civil Service statute. In order to be eligible for the exam, all applicants must be at least 19 years of age by February 18, 2020. In order to be placed on the eligibility list, applicants will be asked to take and pass both a written and physical exam. This physical examination otherwise known as, the Entry Level Physical Ability Test (ELPAT), determines the capability of all applicants to perform basic firefighter tasks.
“Firefighters do so much to protect and maintain safety within our communities,” said Representative Muradian. “I encourage all who are interested to apply sooner rather than later, as the deadline is approaching quickly!”
Applications submitted after February 4th will be charged an additional $50 processing fee.
