    Default Polk County Postings: Lt., Engineer, FF

    http://www.polk-county.net/jobs.aspx?menu_id=24

    Hiring Lieutenants, Driver Engineers, and Part Time Firefighters. I *think* you don't need EMT for the FF position.

    Part time Firefighter is a good way to get some experience, but don't expect it to help you get a full time position at Polk. Looks good on the resume.
    ...at this time.

    Unless there is a mistake, the part-time firefighter positions now require EMT as a minimum. We no longer will allow new hires one year to obtain the certification like we did in the past.

    The draft job postings that I approved last week were corrected to remove the old language and now make EMT a minimum requirement.

    Thanks for clearing that up, Chief.

    The new website is a little harder to navigate compared to the old one. The job descriptions are no longer inculded with the posting and there is no job description for part-time firefighter.

    I noticed that too. I'll contact them and see if we can get that fixed.
