The Elkins Fire Department does not have any current openings. However, testing will be conducted in order to generate a list of eligible candidates from which appointments will be made in the event that any openings arise or new positions are created. You may pick up an application packet from City Hall (401 Davis Ave.) during regular business hours, or download one here. The standard City of Ekins employment application will not be accepted. Applications must be submitted to the Mayor’s Executive Secretary no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, September 15, 2017. Testing dates are as follows:
