  • For this test, the McKinney Fire Department is requiring applicants already be Certified in Texas for Firefighter and Paramedic. You must also be at least 21 years of age and have a minimum of 30 college hours.

  • All candidates for employment as a Firefighter undergo an extensive pre-employment process.
  • Once assigned to a fire station, each recruit firefighter must successfully complete a 12-month probationary period. The recruit is monitored and mentored by an assigned station officer. A Probationary Firefighter Task Book is provided to ensure skills meet standards of MFD. Recruit firefighters are tested on materials in the Task Book monthly, with progress documented and reported to the appropriate chief officer. Failure to successfully complete the probationary period is cause for termination.
