    DO WHAT?? You aren't riding a city bus!!

    You apply like any one else does and compete to get hired. No BS hiring some dude from East ArmPit, Ark because he is a FF2 there!
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Should be soon. I have a friend who just graduated from their academy a few months ago. He said the list is just about expired so they should start accepting applications over the next few months.

    There is nothing on the Baltimore City web site or their Human Resourse web site that indicates anything about them taking applications for firefighter.

    Applications are being accepted June 8 - June 19. They must be picked up and handed in in person. This is that latest news I've heard directly from someone on the job. I'm probably going to call HR tomorrow just to verify that it's true.

    Advantages to Baltimore:
    1. they still let you go inside although the new fire chief is probably figuring out how to change that.
    2. You see a few more fires than suburban/urban counties but not much more.
    3. nice work schedule
    thats about it.
    Disadvantages:
    1. riding ambulances in a horrible ems system
    2. lot of broken down equipment
    3. old broken down buildings
    4. horrible training, no physicals or pt program
    5. epidemic laziness, lack of knowledge among employees
    6. infighting among different job classes
    7. cheating on promotional exams
    8. serious money problems

    No I had to work so I didn't get a chance to. I'm planning on going down on Monday to pick the application up but I'll call HR before I leave to make sure the info is accurate.

    Can you please post as soon as you know? Iam trying to put in applications anywhere I can around here. My wife WILL NOT MOVE. lol. I have to find a fire job within 1.5 hours and all the counties around here are either on a hiring freeze or have ridiculous amounts of applicants so the pickins are slim! Thanks again. I appreciate the post.

    You know this because you work there or are you just envious because you work in the county and wax your wagon thinking about the big one you had 2 years ago.

    Safety record as far as LOD is excellent.

    Disease is possible anywhere, I am not aware of any Medics contracting a disease from exposure, however any healthcare worker is at risk.

    Larger dept, more opportunities.

    EMS major flaw is not enough medic units, 911 abuse, as in any major city.
    EMS is in the process of being reorganized.

    You are assigned suppression out of the academy (unless you request EMS), you are detailed as needed to the Medic, at most 4 consecutive shifts (1 trick)

    This is a new position that does not require ALS, I have not seen a salary yet.

    Shift: 2- 10hr days , 2 - 14hr nights = (1 trick) 4 days off, vacation option every 6th
