Interested in becoming a firefighter with DOVFD? Each prospective new member is expected to complete several hours of training prior to being eligible to respond to calls. This is done in an effort to maintain the level of excellence expected by the department. Firefighter training is held on the first, second and fourth Mondays of each month in the evenings. However, there are other opportunities for new recruits to obtain the minimum hours needed. These hours of training will prepare you for your certifications and fall in line with the department’s and State of Texas’ expectations and requirements. If you are ready to commit, we would love to speak with you! Please fill out the Application Form below.
