Join the Student Force

Our FALL 2023 recruitment drive is underway.  You may submit an online application at anytime between now late September, and we will contact you in late September for an interview.  Come talk to us also at various on-campus events where you see our "Engine-3" fire truck, such as the "U-Fest" welcome back celebration the first weekend of the semester.


      In order to qualify for membership on the Student Force, you must be a student at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Amherst College, or Hampshire College and maintain a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Candidates should be physically fit, non-smokers, and have at least 2 years of school or four semesters remaining. Prior firefighting experience is helpful but not required.
