    Default Firefighter in Barstow, CA

    Anyone confused by this one. It states gs 4 firefighter (paramedic), so I assume non-medics are not qualified. However, it says EMT-1 from National Reg. or CA state is only thing needed.

    If this is an EMT Basic job posting, why is it being advertised as Firefighter Paramdeic and not EMT-1?

    FYI Barstow is a very busy department and you will get tons of solid experience.

    It's a way to get around the system (IFSAC Certs) to hire local Firefighters (w/ state certs and medic experience). They won't stay GS/4's for very long. Better pool of candidates.
