the council just changed the rules on this in December:

Quote:

AFTER JANUARY I, 2020, DEMONSTRATE A BONA FIDE DOMICILE IN THE CITY OF JERSEY CITY FOR AT LEAST TWO (2) YEARS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THEIR QUALIFYING EXAM

I had always thought there was a requirement to live in Jersey City to be a fireman. According to this city website there is:
https://www.jerseycitynj.gov/cityhall/publicsafety/Fire/recruitment

I don't know if you have to be a resident prior to applying and if so for how long? I recall a bunch of firemen sharing the address of a room above a bar so that they could claim a JC address.

It's not lame, because doing so would limit the talent pool of qualified candidates.

As for fire fighters, specifically, don't most live at the fire house when they are working/on duty.

Per state law, all municipal employees are required to live in NJS.

As for the JC Fire Dept, I do not know what their specific employment scoring criteria is. However, Jersey City is a civil service municipality. So you score more employment screening points for living in the city than don't. Likewise more points for living in Hudson county than not.

I know of some JC residents who also passed the test, so if a JC resident is turned down over Bruce's son, that will be a reflection on this city, especially those residents who passed are from Ward F.

Springsteen’s son could land firefighter gig in Jersey City

Updated Mar 26, 4:34 PM; Posted Mar 26, 1:05 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — A member of New Jersey’s royal family — The Springsteens — may become one of Jersey City’s bravest, sources told The Jersey Journal.

Bruce Springsteen’s firefighter son Sam was one of hundreds who took the civil service exam last year to become a firefighter, the sources said. Results were released last week but have not been made public yet
