I am a Retained Sub Officer in the UK and I get £290 a month as an allowance for the average 100 hours a week that I am expected to cover. I then get £17.78 a call for the first hour and £7.65 per hour there after or for any other time that I work at the station. If the appliance has already got a crew (first six ride)and they don't need me, then I get £8.94 for attended the station. We have around 700 calls a year and that helps pay a few of the bills.
Kindest regards & keep safe,

The paid call guys in my hometown have two wage scales. The first is 5.75/hr for the first year as a probie. After a year, it jumps to 12.75/hr.

I am glad everyone has figured out what you're asking for, amidst all of the spelling and grammatical errors!
And to think, the juniors and explorers post's exhibit poor spelling and grammar.
Who are they learning from?

Firefighters get $6.00 an hour (scheduled weekly training and fires). Officers get a few bucks more depending on rank.
Rescue techs get $7 an hour for rescue calls.
EMTs get more (not sure what), with increases for higher certifications.
It's a pretty good deal, especially considering that back on Long Island, I was in the same boat as iwood, zilch. Well, I did get half off on my pool pass, and there's always that retirement thing (the points program).

Not sure on all the pay levels, but I, as a FF/EMT, get $11.50 per point. We get a point for the 1st 2 hours of an incident, then a point for every hour after that. Same goes for training. Schools we get 1 point for every 3 hours of school. We usually get a 3% raise around april. Chief was also looking at getting rid of point system and just go by hourly.

Let's do some math here....
The Chief gets Peanuts
Asst. Chief a bit less
so that must leave somewhere around peanut shells if I'm lucky. It's probably more like the little reddish skin that covers the peanut in the shell.
We are working on the LOSAP program so the future is brightening.

We used to get $5.00 per hour one hour minimum, but one of the trouble makers in the department went to the city manager and wanted senority for the next full time position, because we were considered part time city employees, so now we get $10.00 per call total and are not considered part time just volunteers.
02-20-2001, 06:57 PM #17TriTownship600Firehouse.com Guest
We get $10.00 for the first hour then $6.50 per hour there after.

Like FFTrainer, I'm in New Jersey and the future IS looking brighter but as of now we get a $320/yr clothing allowance and that's it. Our Deputy Chief is working on a Pay-Per-Call proposal at a flat rate of $15/hr for EMS runs only. We are also working on passing a version of the LOSAP program, which if I'm not mistaken, allows a maximum of $1320/per year in a retirement type account with full vesting after 5 years. My department is a Fire/Rescue department that runs all BLS calls in our town and the Pay-Per-Call plan is in response to what ammounts to a ****-poor daytime response for most BLS calls. To the best of my knowledge we will still get paid nothing for fire runs.

I was always told that there are three types of firefighters.
1. Paid (salary)
2. Paid on Call (paid per call)
3. Volunteer (nothing)
In my hall we get $100 a year that 90% of our members turn back over to pay for things like: fireworks at Halloween; Candy canes and Christmas etc. Last year, we became able to claim $1000 deductable on our income tax.
