City of Sioux City Hiring Firefighters

If you've always wanted to be a firefighter or a paramedic, the City of Sioux City is looking for you. Sioux City Fire Rescue has openings for both firefighters and paramedics.

Interested applicants can apply online at before September 5th. To be considered you have to be between the ages of 18 and 34 by September 5th.

Unlike other jobs, it takes more than just an application and an interview to become a firefighter. "So it's not like your typical job that you fill an application and you wait. This is a testing processing you have to go through written exam, a physical agility exam, and, an oral examination, oral interview. Then they get placed on the list," said Sioux City Fire and Rescue Lt. Joe Rodriguez. Rodriguez says the only way to become a Sioux City firefighter is to get on the list. Again, the application deadline is next Friday September 5th.
