    Default Atlanta FD

    i'm having trouble finding info on atlanta fd. i'm currently a firefighter/emt in fl and soon to be paramedic. i hear that their hiring is a pretty long process and that they put you through their own fire school. what is the pay like and is the ems system merged with fire? is there a firefighter/paramedic position? and how does the pension plan work?

    I'd seriously consider somewhere other than Atlanta right now. The city just cut approx 100 fire positions, including laying off the 30-40 recruits in the Fire Academy. I would consider Dekalb Co., Cherokee Co., and the Sandy Springs FD before I took a chance on Atlanta.

    Default Regarding Atlanta Firefighter Opportunites

    Hi y'all. Fromt what i"ve heard on the news, Atlanta is not looking too good to get a job, at least not in the Atlanta metro area with Dekalb and Fulton Counties. Major Shirley Franklins has majorly screwed up! She went ahead and ok'ed the closing of a really important firestation that was so badly needed for that community. Get her out of office! I feel so bad for those poor firefighters down there. My thoughts and prayers are with those guys.

    DeKalb has been hiring quite a bit lately. Keep an eye out.
