The Human Resources Division (HRD) is currently accepting applications for both components of the 2014 Firefighter, Municipal Service Examination.

This examination consists of two components: the Written examination and the Entry Level Physical Ability Test (ELPAT). Candidates MUST APPLY FOR, TAKE and PASS BOTH components in order to be placed on the eligible list for appointment in a civil service city or town.

The Written examination component will be held on April 26, 2014 at various sites across the Commonwealth.

The ELPAT will be administered from January 2014 through July 2014 at the Hudson National Guard Armory in Hudson, MA.

Please note that there is only one site available for the ELPAT. Failure to complete the ELPAT will result in failure of the examination and your name will not be placed on the eligible list. HRD strongly encourages candidates to sign up for and take the ELPAT as soon as possible, due to limited space.
