Application Assistance Workshop (AAW)

The Rochester Fire Department is hosting Application Assistance Workshops (AAW) during the RFD firefighter exam application period. These workshops are designed to provide applicants with important hiring process information and the opportunity to ask questions about the overall hiring process (application completion, physical agility, background investigation, residency requirements, access to exam preparation materials and the medical evaluation). We encourage applicants to attend and learn as much as possible about the Rochester firefighter hiring process. You must register to attend.
