Mt. Vernon Fire Department Testing
The City of Mt. Vernon will be testing this year. The test date is September 13 and application packets should be available by Monday.
MVFD is a totally career department. 24/48 work schedule. We have 27 guys on shift. We run non-transport ALS and all members with the exception of captains are required to be paramedics (you don't have to be a medic to test though). We average around 2500 calls/year, but we'll get more than that this year.
Mt. Vernon has been a slow growing community over the last several years, but with a new city council and mayor, a lot is being done in the way of growth and we expect some decent growth in the near future. The City's website is http://www.mtvernon.com
