Chief Brian Croft says the candidates have to pass a number of tests including a written exam, a physical fitness test, and an oral exam.
Of the fifty hopefuls, only eighteen passed the written exam and now it's down to the final ten who will meet personally for an interview with the chief.
Chief Croft says he will narrow his choice down to four new firefighters. He will make his final decision next week.
