Background Check

I have a juvinile record consisting of one count felony, which is in the process of getting sealed. The incident happened April of 1994 when I was seventeen. I have had no further convictions as a juvinile or an adult. I am now 25 years old and want to pursue a carrer with the fire department. Does the fire department have the authority to disclose my unsealed juvinile records and am I wasting my time?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
