    Default Best Paid Fire Departments in DFW

    I work for a paid city department in DFW, but I know I make very little compared to some of the surrounding departments in the area. I have looked at several others, but wanted to see if anybody had any input as to best starting salary and opportunity for step raises, promotions, and overtime possibilities. Thanks.

    For promotion look at bigger department

    For pay just need to compare each city. To include if you are able to top out and are not held to mid pay range

    Talent, Skills And Commitment Desired

    The Arlington Fire Department is seeking highly motivated individuals who are committed to community service and involvement.

    City management is committed to maintaining an average entry-level firefighter pay, using the following cities as benchmarks: Carrollton, Dallas, Fort Worth, Garland, Grand Prairie, Irving, McKinney, Mesquite, Plano, Richardson, Austin, Corpus Christi, Houston, and San Antonio.

    If you know someone in another dept, you should be able to get pay comparisons they use showing other depts.

    Highland park, university park, carrollton....any of the smaller suburb departments will get you a decent salary.
    Personally, I'd go with a big city and take a little less pay, but that's just me.
