***The Colorado Springs Fire Departments hiring process for the 2021 Academy is now CLOSED*** ​


Due to unforeseen circumstances related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Colorado Springs Fire Department has decided to withdraw and cancel its National Testing Network posting dated January 3, 2020, seeking applicants for the department’s February 2021 Entry Level Firefighter and Entry Level Firefighter Paramedic recruit academy.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause applicants, and we hope to be able to resume our normal recruitment process in January of 2021 for our anticipated 2022 academy. We greatly appreciate the efforts of all applicants to obtain testing and certification requirements, and we recognize the disappointment as a result of the decision to terminate our current recruitment process.  Questions may be sent to or you may call 719-385-7226.
