    Default Lynchburg VA info

    Lynchburg's process is open until Nov 11th. Website has a lot of info about the department, but I was wondering if someone knew if they hire Intermediate's or if they're Paramedic only? Anyone have an idea of the pay bump for ALS? Are they 24/48 or NOVA schedule?

    I know a little about them not too much though. I know they hire ALS both intermediate and paramedic as for the pay I think they give a bonus or something like it on top of the ff/emt pay for ALS. I do not know how much that is though. The schedule is a 24 on 24 off I believe.

    They are not too big 8 stations. They have a reputation of being a aggressive fire department. The pay is not bad considering The area has a fairly cheap cost of living. Looking at the posting is looks like it is only for a FF/EMT but even if you are ALS you may as well apply, they may take you as a medic anyways. The worst they can tell you is no.

    Thanks for the info. With some VA departments only interested in P's nowadays it's making it a little stressful for us Intermediates.

    Yeah Lynchburg is in BREMS council they dont have many meds/procedures differences between intermediates and paramedics. Same with WVEMS which is what the Roanoke valley is in.
