The Department of Defense (DoD) SkillBridge program provides an opportunity for Service members to gain civilian work experience and bridge the gap between the end of service and the beginning of their civilian careers. This program provides training and work experience while also allowing employers the opportunity to train and evaluate the Service member's suitability for work.
The Town's SkillBridge program currently provides training to prepare individuals for a job as a Firefighter/EMT.
Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue is dedicated to serving the community with outstanding customer service and timely emergency response services including fire suppression, Advance Life Support transport - emergency medical services (EMS), hazardous materials and technical rescue services.
While participation in the SkillBridge program does not guarantee employment at the end of the program, it does provide valuable training for those wishing to pursue a career in Fire Services.
The Town hires both experienced and inexperienced candidates.
While we will make every effort to accommodate SkillBridge requests, please be aware that that the SC Fire Academy conducts classes on a quarterly basis and we are limited to a specific number of candidates for each session. This along with the time of your end of enlistment may create certain challenges. We will do our best to address requests on a case-by-case review.
