    I know a couple of guys on the job there, and work with some of their department members on some regional projects.

    CHFD is a good department, good chief, nice apparatus. They run routinely with their surrounding jurisdictions and have a good relationship with those departments. Not a ton of fire load, but a good variety of calls, including some action on I-95. They run out of two stations, staff ambulances at both, along with a couple of engines, a quint, and a brand new massive rescue-pumper. They also have a fairly active volunteer compliment.

    Not sure if that helps or if I can answer anything else for you...

    Local 3612. Unknown how many hiring. now sure how many on a rig.

    It is a combination department. I am not sure when they went paid but I had applied for the Chief's position back in the 1990's. I didn't get it. I was a Lt. when it was a all volley dept. back in the 1960's.



    You can always call and someone would be able to tell you.

    I believe every firefighter has at least EMT-I and their staffing is 3 on each engine and 2 per ambulance. I think I heard they are hiring 4
