    Roanoke City FD and Roanoke County FD are two completely different departments. Is there one of them in particular you were wondering about?

    Why not contact Roanoke City and or Roanoke County and ask them about being paid while in training! That would be the best way to find out.

    I plan on calling Roanoke City and County but since I use this forum to get information I figure I would ask questions to see if someone can answer them.

    Anyone hear anything back from the County yet today?
