Fire & Emergency Careers

The last civil service exam was held on January 8. When registration is open for the next civil service exam, a notice will be posted on this page. For more information about the exam, view the last Notice of Civil Service Examination (PDF).

As you consider employment with a fire department, we encourage you to compare all the benefits each agency offers. In addition to the beginning base salary and top pay, these include the provision of incentive pay, educational pay, longevity pay, promotional opportunities, and retirement packages. This is in addition to our comprehensive selection of benefits offered by the city.

We are a Texas Local Government Code 143 city, and this civil service protection provides many benefits and promotional opportunities based on merit. The City of Denton also reimburses 100% of the employee's tuition at an accredited college or university.
