Employment Opportunities

Hiring Process
The hiring of firefighters or paramedics is under the authority of the Oak Brook Board of Fire and Police Commissioners and is done by competitive examination. Upon completion of the examination process, successful candidates are ranked on an eligibility list in descending order by score. The Fire Department will then seek candidates from the eligibility list when vacancies occur. The eligibility list, once posted, is current for two years.
