Can I pick up an application now? How do I apply?

No, applications are only available on-line during the application period. Firefighter Civil Service Exams are posted on the City of San Marcos' "Careers" page and the SMFD Employment Opportunities page. 

Testing determines an eligibility list which will be in effect for a period of one year from the test date or until the list has been exhausted, whichever occurs first. Please apply at  Questions?  Contact our Human Resource Department, Ph: 512.393.8066.
