So you have applied, now what?
Typically applications are initially reviewed by the President, Fire Chief, and Board of Fire Commissioners. After references are checked and the background investigation is completed, applicants will receive an interview with the President and the Fire Chief to go over duties and responsibilities of a Cleveland Hill Firefighter. The applicant will then be voted on at the next monthly company meeting and will receive a call to have an initial physical. Shortly thereafter the firefighter will be welcomed into the Cleveland Hill family and begin their endeavor and adventure of a lifetime full of fond memories of volunteering, assisting/aiding the community, and everlasting friendships.
