The City of Concord and The Town of Harrisburg have developed a joint firefighter recruitment process. This process saves these cities the cost of doing independent recruitment efforts and is more efficient for candidates because they can apply with more than one city using the same testing process.

Not all departments currently have firefighter vacancies, but this testing will be used to establish an eligibility list which will be used to fill future vacancies as they occur. When the testing process is complete, the eligibility list will be made available to the listed departments.     

This is a joint hiring process between Concord and Harrisburg.  All applicants must fill out an application with each agency of interest.  It is individuals responsibility to contact other agencies to see if they're accepting applications at this time.
