The Board of Fire and Police Commissioners for the City of Burbank is now accepting applications for the position of Entry Level Firefighter/Paramedic.

Testing is being conducted for 6 IMMEDIATE new hires and to establish an Eligibility List for future hiring needs.

Burbank is located in Cook County, at the southwest edge of the city of Chicago. Conveniently located only 12 miles southwest of the Loop, and bordered by Oak Lawn, Bridgeview and Bedford Park makes living in Burbank a great place to raise a family or establish a business.

The goal of the Burbank Fire Department is to save lives and property and to prevent the citizens of Burbank from further danger by natural or man-made disaster and accidents.

The Fire Department is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with an average shift of 9 full-time firefighters and paramedics. Shifts consist of 24 hours on duty followed by 48 hours off. Burbank Fire is a young, aggressive department that is known for its rigorous and proactive approach to fire suppression and emergency response.  The Burbank Fire Department responded to over 40 structure fires last year.  Average call volume ranges between 4,500-4,700 incidents a year.  Manning consists of 2 Officers, 2 Engineers, and 4-6 Firefighter/Paramedics, depending on staffing. The Department fleet consists of three Engines, one Quint, one Technical Rescue Squad, four Advance Life Support Ambulances (paramedic staffed), two Service Vehicles, and three Command Vehicles. We will also be taking delivery of a Rosenbauer Commander EXT Rescue Pumper in October 2024!
