An examination for Fire Captain will be held annually and the
register established will be valid for one year.

Examinations for all other classes of positions will be held
when the Board deems a list necessary, and the registers es-
tablished will be valid for one year. The life of such registers
may be extended for an additional year if the Board deems it
practical and expedient to do so.

Satisfactory completion of a performance test of driving skill
under the supervision of the Fire Training Chief is a prerequisite
to applying for promotion to Fire Rescue Lieutenant.

When a man on an eligible register for a higher position than his
present class declines an assignment which would allow him to act
as an alternate for the higher position, his name will be moved
down on the eligible list below the name of the man who accepts
the assignment.

If a qualified eligible is serving in a permanent vacancy in a
temporary capacity at the time of a new examination, he will not
be required to take any further examination.

The Fire Alarm Superintendent will qualify men for the position of
Fire Dispatcher and will furnish the Fire Promotion Board a list of
qualified applicants and their grades.

Non-firefighting personnel desiring to return to firefighting must
serve one year as full-pay Firemen before being eligible to compete
in promotional examinations. Members of the Training Division are
considered to be firefighting personnel.

Upon return to the Fire Department, reemployed Firemen, including
those who were formerly on the eligible register for Fire Lieutenant
or other promotional registers, must serve one year as full-pay
firemen before being eligible to compete in promotional examinations.

Seniority will be recognized by the addition to the final attained
passing grade of one-half (3) point for each year of service in the
Fire Department beyond the first five (5) years to a maximum of five
(5) points in any case. For promotion to the rank of Captain and
higher,seniority will be recognized by giving one-half (’s) point for
each year of service on next lower rank only, to a maximum of five
(5) points.

In the event of a tie in final grades after addition of seniority
points, the man with the highest seniority will be placed highest
on the eligible register. If seniority points are the same, the
man with the highest written grade will be placed highest on the
eligible register,

Fire Department personnel serving in the armed forces will accrue
seniority as though serving in the Fire Department.

Fire Department personnel on military leeve may be given the pro-
motional examination for which they are eligible and will be notified
of the opening and closing dates of application for all examinations
for classes to which they may apply.
