The completed application must be received by the City of Edwardsville Human Resources Department by Monday, November 18, 2019 at 4:00pm in order for you to continue to be considered for the Edwardsville Fire Department hiring list. The original application (not a copy) may be dropped off at the HR Department on the 2nd floor at City Hall (118 Hillsboro Avenue) or mailed to:

Human Resources Department

118 Hillsboro Avenue

P.O. Box 407

Edwardsville, IL  62025


PLEASE NOTE: If you are selected to continue in the process for further consideration for placement on the hiring list, Illinois law requires a physical ability assessment as part of the firefighter hiring process. Your eligibility is determined by the number of candidates the Board of Fire & Police Commissioners has chosen to progress through the hiring list process, a candidate’s initial written examination score, and successful completion of a preliminary background check and oral interview.

 The Edwardsville Board of Fire and Police Commissioners has adopted two tests as part of its standard: (1) the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) and (2) the Aerial Ladder Climb.

CPAT Testing

On or before January 31, 2020, all candidates for the Edwardsville Fire Department must present to the City of Edwardsville’s Human Resources Department a valid CPAT certification card valid through at least January 31, 2020.  Any candidate failing to do so will be stricken from further employment consideration.

Candidates who have not obtained a CPAT card or whose card will expire before January 31, 2020, may take the CPAT examination at their own expense at the St. Louis County Fire Academy or other certified CPAT testing site. 

Please note the following:

·         It is your responsibility to schedule and complete the CPAT examination and to timely provide evidence of your completion to Amanda Tucker, Director of Human Resources, City of Edwardsville, 118 Hillsboro Ave., P.O. Box 407, Edwardsville, IL 62025. 

·         The St. Louis County Fire Academy is a certified CPAT testing site and is located at 1266 Sutter Avenue, St. Louis, MO  63133  (Phone 314.889.8670).  More information can be found at

Pre-registration is required to take the CPAT test.

Mandatory Aerial Ladder Climb Testing

In addition, the Edwardsville Fire Department will conduct a mandatory aerial ladder climb to evaluate a candidate’s cognitive abilities when faced with height.  Eligible candidates will be contacted at a future date regarding the scheduling of this part of the physical assessment.

Please contact Amanda Tucker, Director of Human Resources, at 618.655.1164, with any questions or concerns.
