Candidate Orientation Guide

The South Charleston Fire Department is currently accepting applications for Probationary Firefighters.  You are encouraged to obtain an Orientation Guide before taking the examination.

The CEB Candidate Orientation Guide can be downloaded on the page following the instruction and disclaimer page that applicants must read and agree to. This will ensure the orientation guide is downloaded successfully. Once the guide is in the FPSI shopping cart, applicants will be given the option to pay with a PayPal account or as a PayPal guest with credit card. The download link will be located on the Order Received-Checkout Page that appears on the FPSI website as soon as payment is submitted and applicants are redirected from PayPal back to FPSI. Applicants must pay close attention to ALL instructions on both FPSI and PayPal’s websites in order to download any guide properly.

Applications must be returned to the City Clerks office no later than 4:30 pm on May 31,2019.

If you are a high school senior and expect to graduate this year, you may apply if you provide written documentation of your pending graduation from a school official.  You MUST provide a copy of your diploma prior to the CPAT, otherwise your application will be rejected.
