Starting in the Winter Quarter of 2013/2014, we will begin accepting applications for the Student Resident Firefighter (SRFF) Program.
After the applications are accepted, there will be a series of meetings, a written test to measure aptitude (no fire service background needed), and then interviews to establish the group of students who will participate in the Student Academy in June and July. Tests and interviews will be held from February-June 2014. Approximately 20 students will be selected for the competitive academy. The next academy will take place in 2014.
From the graduates of the academy, a list will be created. With each current SRFF that graduates or leaves the program, a spot is opened up and offered to the top candidates on the list. Approximately 10 spots are available every two years.
The Student Residents will begin working on shift at the beginning of the Fall Quarter (October) 2014.
You must be an ACCEPTED and REGISTERED UC Davis Student in order to apply and be invited to testing. It is critical that transfer students hoping to be eligible for the position be fully accepted as a student by the University NO LATER than Winter Quarter preceding the application period.
