If you want a well paying firefighting job at a growing fire department in the St. Louis Metro East area, this is the place to go! If you have an Illinois medic license and need a job, don't hesitate to sign up.

Since they are so close to c-ville I thought I would mention that Granite City Fire Department will be accepting apps soon.
Unlike most cities in Illinois of similar demographics, they are financially healthy.
