Being a WEP Firefighter is both challenging and rewarding. Our program offers you the ability to explore your interest in the Fire Service while developing your firefighting skills and work habits in preparation to advance toward firefighting as a career.
If you are looking at our page, you are likely experiencing the challenge of applying for career employment; you have learned there are plenty of applicants for a limited number of positions – competition is stiff. What would make your application stand out from the rest?
We offer what Fire Departments are looking for; candidates with the right combination of life experience, cutting-edge knowledge and practical experience. Through our Work Experience Program (WEP), we are able to provide Fire Departments with a concentrated pool of pre-screened, highly motivated, skilled and productive individuals. These Departments recognize savings on their recruitment costs, improved employee retention, and an appropriate employment match – this is a testament to our Program’s success.
