Example of a Firefighter Cover Letter

An idea to consider: If you're a firefighter looking for a position in a new location, you can start the process by writing a cover letter to the fire department in the area where you wish to work. There will also be an application to fill out. So make sure you know what is required before you start the process. Make a phone call, if necessary, or look on the Internet for up-to-date information on the procedure required in various areas of the country. The important thing to keep in mind is that firefighting jobs are competitive so you don't want to ruin your chance by taking a casual approach. Do your homework and then write a great cover letter.

Mr. Michael Dodd
Hiring Manager
Any Town Fire Department
100 Firefighter Way
Any Town, USA 11111

Dear Mr. Dodd:

I saw on the Internet your announcement that you are now accepting cover letters and applications for two positions in your fire station. Currently I am an experienced fire fighter with four years of active service in Small Town, USA.

Now that I live in Any Town I am interested in finding employment with the Any Town Fire Department so I was especially pleased to see that you have openings for qualified individuals.

I also read that you are interested in receiving one-page resumes with details about previous service as a firefighter. I am enclosing mine with this letter, where you will see in detail my record of accomplishments, including my involvement with the massive 'East Side' fire of 2010 where I was able to lead a team of colleagues in saving an area of residential homes that were threatened by wild fire.

I'm aware that you will receive many applications for these openings but I hope you will consider my experience and give me an opportunity to come in for an interview so we can speak in person.
You can reach me by phone at 777-777-7777 days or evenings until 10:00 p.m.

Thank you for the opportunity to submit my cover letter, application, and resume and to bid for one of the jobs open in your station.

Sincerely,

James Job Searcher

A good tip: Your own fire fighter cover letter should be personal and professional in style, similar to the one shown here, but also true to your personality. Include any details that will help interest the hiring manager in calling you for an interview where you can meet and talk in person.
