For the complete list of requirements, please follow this link: How to Be a Firefighter in the Philippines

Driver and Non-Driver Category

To address the wide gap between the driver to firetruck ratio, the BFP is prioritizing FO1 applicants who are holders of unexpired Professional Driver’s License (PDL) restriction code 2 and 3 with or without National Certificate II or III issued by TESDA provided that the applicants have complied with the minimum qualification standards stipulated under existing circulars, laws and rules. These types of applicants will be categorized as “Drivers”.

Applicants who do not have unexpired Professional Driver’s License (PDL) restriction code 2 and 3 shall fall under the category of “Non-Driver”.

Architect and Engineer Category

Applicants who are licensed engineers, specifically Civil, Electrical, Mechanical engineers and licensed architects shall fall under this category and will be prioritized. This is to strengthen the BFP’s pool of personnel who will be designated as Plan Evaluators and other engineering-related functions.

How to Apply

Submit all the following documents in a folder to the Human Resource Management Division of BFP National Headquarters or any BFP Regional Offices near you. For more information, you may contact:

    • For the 2018 BFP recruitment, hindi po kasama based sa memo eh. Drivers with Professional License 2 and 3 above/NCII or III in driving ang pinaka priority. Second is mga engineers.

    • Sa bigat po ng fire suit at iba pang firefighting gears, pati na din yung hose, kailangan talaga ng BFP ng medyo matatatangkad na personnel.
