The Madisonville Fire Department is hiring due to several recent retirements.
The department says they have six positions they desperately need to fill.
Officials say this hiring process will be the first time the department will have to adhere to national guidelines of C-PAT testing mandated by the Kentucky State Fire Commission for all career firefighters.
Officials say firefighters are having to work overtime to fill the empty spots.
