    Default nj career questions..

    Question 1: if I am laid off from a department due to budget cuts, am I able to be picked up from another town? Why or why not?

    Question 2: why aren't all fire depts. running EMS? Isnt it a money maker for the city/ dept.? And will they all be jumping on "The Bus" sooner or later?

    For the most part if you are a career firefighter in NJ and get laid off chances are you will have to go through the same process all over to try to get another job.

    I was a volunteer FF in NJ for 10 years, Fire depts and first aid squads are run separate for some reason and a lot of career EMS is hospital based. If your not currently living in NJ I would recommend not moving there to try to get a job.

    If you are a career firefighter in NJ and get laid off you'll go to the RICE list. You will stay there for quite some time. Im career in NJ and looking to leave...
