URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — Have you ever considered becoming one of the area’s bravest?

The Urbana Fire Department is accepting applications for firefighter-EMT. It is consistently one of the most competitive and sought-after positions within the city.

The process will create a two-year eligibility list to fill vacancies. Urbana Fire Chief Charles Lauss noted that this year’s campaign theme is “Climb the Ladder,” which refers to both the challenging selection process and the demanding career.

“This is a field where no two days are ever alike, and you always have to bring your best effort,” he stated. “However, our slogan is that ‘opportunity starts with the first step.’ With these challenges come incredible rewards, both personally and professionally.”

Applications are accepted through June 12 with a recruiting open house being held Saturday, June 1.
