Career advancement? How does your department prepare you?
Hello fellow firefighters,
I need some input! How does your department encourage career advancement? Is there a list of qualifications that one must meet before moving to the next promotional level (ex, lieutenant to captain)? Does your department have a different process or some type of criteria that one must posess for line officers? How about Administration positions, (Fire inspector, EMS Director, Fire prevention, Haz Mat Director)? If your department has such things, please email me.
I thank you in advance for your responses.
Let me adjust my question here. Specifically, What does your department require for qualifacations for Administration Jobs (Fire Marshal, Asst. Chief, Chief)? I am looking for things like a college degree, years of experience as line officers, certain state or NFPA requirements.
Stay Low and Stay Safe,
Lt. Brett J Overmyer
