Montana Firefighter Testing Consortium
MFTC was officially formed in 1997 when the fire departments of 5 Montana municipalities agreed to conduct joint testing in order to create a pool of qualified applicants for the position of entry-level firefighter in those departments. Since 2001, MFTC has conducted an annual testing process toward that end.
As of 2016, the Consortium consists of the following members: Big Sky Fire Department; Billings Fire Department; Bozeman Fire Department; Butte Fire Department; Great Falls Fire/Rescue; Helena Fire Department; Lockwood Rural Fire District; Miles City Fire Department; Missoula Fire Department; and Missoula Rural Fire District. In 2014 Central Valley Fire District joined.
We appreciate your interest in a career in the fire service and hope you will consider participating in the Consortium’s upcoming testing process.
We are proud to be serving the citizens of the great State of Montana to the best of our abilities.
