“Do you want to be a part of the hottest team? Are you courageous under fire? Do you like a mental and physical challenge? Do you like to work in an environment that is always something new, something different? Do you thrive in a team-based environment? Do you have the will or desire to serve your community? We at the National Fire Service pride ourselves with readiness, dedication, service and hard work. We are currently accepting applications for recruitment as a firefighter; entry level is high school diploma or higher academic achievements. Interested applicants can submit their government application by June seventeenth 2016, along with a recent police record, a curriculum vitae or resume; two letters of reference, a photocopy of an original birth certificate, Social Security card and academic achievements.”

“Is there any skill that these persons have to come with sir?”


Orin Smith

“Whatever special skills they can come with—whether it is computer skills, whether it is electrical, masonry, mechanical…all these are just wonderful assets that they can bring to the department. Applicants if they have a valid B-2 driver’s license is always an asset as well.”


Applications are to be addressed to the Fire Chief, National Fire Service, Cleghorn Street, Belize City.
