You care for the community. We care for you!
Do you want to be part of our mantra and join the Austin–Travis County EMS family? The information below outlines the hiring process for Cadet-Field, Cadet-Communications, and Modified applicants. There are a number of elements that must be completed prior to receiving an offer of employment. Depending on the chosen career path, the order of steps may vary slightly but regardless, all components in the hiring process must be successfully completed for an offer of employment to be made. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements will be disqualified.
Important information for out-of-town applicants:
- If you are successful in phase I and phase II of the hiring process you will be required to return to Austin for the final phase.
- You are not required to complete reciprocity with the Texas Department of State Health Services in order to attend our hiring process. Only if you are offered employment will you need to obtain a Texas certification.
