    They just received a SAFER grant and had laid off three (3) firefighter before the grant. They received just over $300,000. I would say preference will be given to those three firefighters. And with that total, that would only equal approx 3 salaries for 3 years. Any information on they are only hiring the firefighters back or if they plan to staff more would be appreciated.

    Actually I read this information soon after they were awarded the grant.

    STEUBENVILLE - The city fire department was awarded a $308,901 S.A.F.E.R. grant Friday that will mean the recall of two laid-off firefighters and the hiring of a third firefighter.

    Unfortunately you have to be 21 to sit for the exam so I'm out. Good luck everyone.

    Testing for one position? That will probably discourage a lot of folks

    Smaller department. They have to do what is financially possible. They plan to re-apply for the safer grant to keep those jobs. Someone has to get the 1 spot, I suppose anyone has a chance if you qualify to take it.

    Steubenville laid-off three but rehired one because of a termination that occured in the department. They applied for a SAFER grant for 3 and only have two to rehire so they are giving a test to hire another. Talk of retirements coming up in the next couple of years so possibly a good list to be on.
