    Default DCFD Hiring Firefighter/Paramedics

    Washington, DC Fire and EMS is hiring Firefighter/Paramedics. They have lifted the FF1, FF2, and Hazmat Awareness requirement. All interested candidates can read about the position at the following address:

    www.dchr.dc.gov

    Then "Search Current Openings"

    Then "Firefighter/Paramedic"

    Job requires one year of Advanced Life Support experience. Other requirements are listed on the public announcement.

    It is a great department to work for, regardless of what some might say!

    Come work for the Nation's Capital.

    How often does DC hire firefighter/medics?! They just had a process not to long ago.

    It has been completely removed from their job listing. Very strange indeed

    I just got a phone call from HR asking me to come in for an orientation on the 23rd. Anyone else get the same call? I applied back in October. I tried to re-apply for this one, but it is no longer on the dchr website.

    It looked like there were several inconsistencies with the original public announcement. In fact I was surprised they published it the way it was written. That being said I hope they are just fixing their errors and posting soon. We need firefighter/paramedics so anyone interested should continue to look at the dchr.dc.gov website.

    While not my first choice, I see that they are now advertising single role paramedic, does anyone know if there is any promotion or lateral transfer opportunities to go from single role to dual role?

    I applied last time as well and had an issue with certifications, I sure hope they re open this didn't have a chance to put in for it in the last 2 days. Anyone know about the single role positions? Chance to go to fire side?

    Yes there is cross over potential. I would imagine the firefighter/paramedic announcement will be back shortly.

    Is there any chance they will open up hiring for FireFighter/ EMT? I begin paramedic school next week and I was just accepted to test for Arlington FD in February, but my dream is to work in DC.

    So it just reopened, I notice that different from the past listings it says "will travel primarily by medic unit of fire apparatus" so does that mean that you'll be assigned to a box now? And it also says "promotion potential none" can anyone elaborate on that?

    That's for the position of civilian paramedic. Probably an error in the posting

    Promotion potential is wrong.

    That is the general description that they have always used. FF/Medics are assigned to engine companies. You will do plenty of time on a medic unit though. It is part of the position.
