Working for civil security

The Directorate-General Civil Security employs a diversity of personnel. Ranging from jurists who write law texts for the fire departments, to agents of the Civil Protection who pump out your flooded cellar, to operators in the emergency centres who send you the adequate assistance when you are in distress.

If you already work for the Civil Protection or a fire department, you can also apply to be detached to the Centre of Expertise for civil security or to become a member of one of the specialized teams.

If you are interested in a function at one of the fire departments in Belgium, you first have to obtain a federal aptitude certificat. More information on this subject can be read on the website (in Dutch, French or German).
