Pasco Fire Department - Firefighter
Last updated on October 05, 2023
PST Partner Agency since October 19, 2011
The City of Pasco maintains an eligible list for Firefighter/EMT/Paramedic positions. We will be pulling scores from PST on September 6th in order to conduct oral board interviews on September 29. If you are selected for an oral board interview then you will be contacted via e-mail.
In order to be eligible to participate in the City's application screening process in the future, applicants should first complete the initial testing (written exam and CPAT) and complete the online Personal History Statement (PHS) with Public Safety Testing (PST). The CPAT can be obtained from any provider (including PST), but written testing and PHS must be completed with PST. Scores from the PST eligibility list are good for one (1) year from the date of PST testing.
Once the PST testing process and current CPAT is obtained, and the PHS is completed, eligible candidates will be contacted to complete Oral Boards.

TESTING IN WASHINGTON STATE CANCELED THROUGH MAY 31, 2020
All pre-employment tests in Washington State have been canceled until May 31, 2020 unless government restrictions are eased. With recent updates, facility closures, and government guidelines, this step is necessary and could be modified at any time. The health and safety of our customers, our staff, and their families is of the highest priority.
We will continue to evaluate developments and make changes to this policy as necessary. When we do resume testing, there will be plenty of events for everyone to test. We are in regular communication with our public safety agency partners, assessing alternatives to the traditional testing model and our testing policies. Any future updates will be posted on the PST website and our Facebook page.
If you have tested with PST in the past 12 months, there may be additional positions you are now eligible to add. Several departments have temporarily changed their testing policies due to the suspension in testing that COVID-19 has caused. Please login to your PST account and navigate to the ‘New Positions’ page to see what departments you can add! We will regularly update that page in your account as departments send updates.
FUTURE TEST REGISTRATION
We know that there will be testing in the future - we just don’t know when! We want you to be prepared for when testing begins again so we have created test events on our calendar that you can register for that will place you in a queue to be first notified. These tests are not “real” test events, they are essentially a holding area. You will be able to “reschedule” out of that event to any other event date/location at no cost. Registering now will also give you time to work on your Personal History Statement (PHS) so that your data will be ready and up-to-date to send to your departments once testing resumes.
To sign up for this placeholder event, select the June 15, 2020 test date in your category (police, fire, 911 dispatch, corrections, etc.).
