  • Denton Fire Department (Texas)

    There should be an entrance exam coming up in a few months for Denton...Octoberish. Can anyone tell me if their test is similar or the same as any other local departments?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ya i sent them an email and they said the test would probably be in january, and the posting to register would be 3 months before that.

      Yes, that's correct, application starts in October & test should be in January.

      If you have taken Denton's civil test, is there another local department that gave the same or one that's very close to it? Is there a verbal reading or do you read a passage for memory...?

        This is a bump and answer. Dentons test is just like the practice test.

            ...did get my practice test.

            I have a good friend that is a Driver there, been there for about 8 years. He likes the department w/no complaints. Sorry I don't have specifics for you.

                kevinamt, unfortunately, I just live in Sachse. I have applied for the temporary position (I'm only FF/EMT-B), but from what I hear they are heavy on the P preferred. Good luck! Here's a link to their site;

                      I did...made a A-. After the packet is turned back in, I will forget about it (since they said we may not hear anything for months). If I hear from them for a poly, I will get excited about it. I do like Denton's recruitment steps, next step is poly, then p.a.t., interviews...

                      How about you schmidthouse7, how did you do?

                        Did good enough it'll be a while but if you scored in the 90's and pass the background u should get a poly. The backgrounds a hard part they'll eliminate a lot.

                          I did well on the test. Look forward to the rest of the process! I havent found any information on the PAT though.

                              They have taken them down..?

                              Here's what I found from the '09 test scores & "Final Grouped Recruit List" (that have been up for some time before sometime last week);

                              Final Rank - Test Score - Test Score Rank

                              1 - 92 - 41
                              2 - 97 - 3
                              3 - 94 - 17
                              4 - 88 - 74
                              5 - 88 - 75
                              6 - 91 - 48
                              7 - 94 - 15
                              8 - 96 - 7
                              9 - 93 - 29
                              10 - 90 - 61
                              11 - 92 - 43
                              12 - 90 - 60

                              Optimistic info!
