    Default Lancaster City hiring 2012

    http://www.cityoflancasterpa.com/lan...ite%5B2%5D.pdf

    Closes 5/31


    What does everyone know about the department? I know they're having a lot of...discussion...with the city about funding and staffing, and they work 10 hour days and 14 hour nights. Do they run 2-man units? EMS runs? How is morale?

    I went on the union's website and apparently, the city,much like a lot of cities in PA that don't need full time paid staff, are hiring part time FFs. If I'm not wrong, I looked at the website about 2 weeks ago, that they are indeed having financial issues within the city and I believe that the FFs agreed to a pay freeze in order to avoid lay offs. I filled out the application, but with gas being 4 dollars a gallon, add on the cost of the application...IMO not worth the time to go down to a city that has no chance of hiring. I mean I'll spend serious money if there is a chance of hiring..but not to a place where there is none. but, if you live a county over..go for it.

    I read an article saying they're planning on hiring 3-5 full time firefighters in this process, so hopefully that stays true.

    Either way, it's only about 40 minutes from my house, so it can't hurt for me to stroll on over and test. Its one more in my giant list of places I'm applying to.
