The Philomath Fire & Rescue Board of Directors is seeking three local residents willing to serve three-year terms on the fire district’s Civil Service Commission.

The commission reviews potential new hires for the department from the application through the interviewing process. The group also reviews payroll changes.

The Philomath Fire & Rescue board appoints individuals to serve on the commission. According to the district, participation is fairly limited in scope with a quarterly meeting and others as needed for hiring of new staff.

More information and an application to apply for the volunteer position can be found on the Philomath Fire & Rescue website.
