Firefighter Eligibility List

Back to Human Resources Page

After a lengthy and competitive process, the Orland Fire Protection District’s Final Eligibility List for Firefighters/Paramedics has been successfully approved by the Board of Fire Commissioners. A preliminary eligibility list was established based on proof of successful completion of the CPAT, and passing of the written examination (per the cut-off score mandated by PA 97-251). Those candidates on the preliminary eligibility list were then invited to participate in a subjective oral interview with the Orland Fire Chiefs to further assess job-related skills. Scores from the written examination and oral interview were combined to establish the initial eligibility list. Lastly, after adding applicable preference points to the scores contained on the initial eligibility list, the final eligibility list was established and approved by the OFPD Fire Commission. Further participation in the selection process will take place as vacancies occur.
