What It Takes to Be a Part of the City of Wichita's Fire Department

It takes strength, courage, common sense, problem-solving skills, and the willingness to want to help others. Do YOU have what it takes?

The Wichita Fire Department wants capable men and women who are interested in a career in fire fighting. As a firefighter, you will perform technical and professional services for the citizens of Wichita. In emergencies such as a fire, flood, tornado, explosion, or car and home accidents, firefighters meet their most severe test. They must have the ability and dedication to educate children, residents, and business people to be aware of the need for fire prevention and protection.

The Wichita Fire Department does more than put out fires. We save lives.
