Fire Fighter EP The Port Coquitlam Fire & Emergency Services only accepts applications during active recruitment. Application will be accepted via email only.

The City desires highly motivated, energetic professionals to assume the role of Fire Fighter. This is skilled fire fighting entailing the combating, extinguishing and preventing of fires, and saving of life and property. A Fire Fighter is responsible for rapidly and efficiently performing various duties under emergency conditions frequently involving considerable hazard. The work includes routine servicing and maintenance of fire equipment, apparatus, and property and participation in programs such as company fire inspections. Although specific orders, instructions and assignments are received from a superior, a Fire Fighter exercises independent judgment and action in emergency situations where referral to a superior for directions is not possible. Work performance is checked and evaluated by a superior in terms of effective firefighting and related services rendered to the Fire Department.
