A career in public service can be one of the most rewarding paths for your future. We are committed to hard work, continuous training and having a positive attitude. If this describes you, we have a place for you at the Round Rock Fire Department.
Recruiting and Academy
The recruiting, hiring and initial education and training of new personnel as Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) forms one corner stone of the Training Division. The Academy builds a strong foundation within the Round Rock Fire Department. Hard work, commitment to training, and a positive attitude are the behaviors that lead to a successful career and a successful academy.
The development, delivery and coordination of ongoing training and the learning of new skills and industry practices is a year-around endeavor managed by designated staff within the Training Division.
Medical first response to include basic and advanced life support requires constant practice and staying up to date on medical practices. A designated staff ensures our EMTs and Paramedics are well educated and trained, and our department stays in compliance with state and federal regulations.
Planning for the future of individual personnel, as well as succession within our department, requires a dedication to professional development that is being met through a dedicated position within the Training Division. Education required for the next level in the organization, promotional prep, advanced learning and assisting with the pursuit of a college degree are all within the purview of this designated staff.
