    Default Memphis taking firefighter / paramedic applications

    The City of Memphis is accepting applications for firefighter / paramedics. Word has it that they are holding two recruit classes in 2009.

    Does this mean you have to be a paramedic in order to apply or do they get you certified paramedic at the end of the academy?

    As stated above, take a bit of initiative and read the job posting.

    As far as how Memphis hires; all non certified applicants are hired off of a civil service list. A written test is given followed by a physical agility. A list is formed an people are pulled from that. The city has a current list and I am unsure as to when another test will be given.

    Paramedic applicants apply through an open application process. Once the city decides to hold a recruit class, the desired number of paramedics are selected from recieved applications and the remainder are pulled from the civil service list.

    If I can be of any help to anyone trying to land a job, send me an email at benbindokas52@yahoo.com . Espescially out of town applicants, it is a big jump that can be quite daunting at first but is well worth it.

    Hey quick question.......
    I read the posting and its not 100% clear to me, any idea if you can apply if you're currently in paramedic school and expect to be finished this summer?

    Thanks for reading.

    Yes, you must already be a paramedic to apply. They will probably open the application period again later in the year. Study hard and get your license, you'll get the chance to apply.

    If chosen, you will be a "conditional hire", meaning you must successfully complete the PAT including the mile run, and a medical. They don't know how many they are hiring yet.

    How do you guys do for fires? You stay pretty busy or is it slow?

    We do pretty good when it comes to fires, we have slow areas and busy areas, south memphis, and north memphis companies see a decent amount of fire, out east companies (cordova area) get there fires too just not as often as the rest of the city.
