Moberly firefighters recently received salary raises, which included an increase of 14 percent for base firefighters. Department officials are hopeful this will lead to an increase in firefighter recruitment. Fire chief Don Ryan says recruitment efforts are taking place this week.
The written test will begin Friday at 8 am at the Moberly Municipal Auditorium. A physical agility test will follow at Moberly Fire Station 1. Ryan says one final step in the process will occur at a later date.
Interested applicants for becoming a Moberly firefighter are encouraged to register for Friday’s test as soon as possible.
