What is the pay for Antarctica FF jobs?
I just got through reading the article that Firehouse.com has posted about jobs in Antarctica. I applied for one of these jobs in the early 90's, but I was turned down. Now that I have many more years of experience and much more training, I'm thinking about applying again. Does anyone have any idea what the pay would be for one of these jobs?
Antarctic FD Job Information
I just finished my first season on the "ICE". It is certainly not for everyone!! McMurdo is a rugged town, limited activity and if our fire prevention and public education maintain their health, a very low fire rate. Not a lot of exciting fire calls for the more junior firefighters. Airfield ARFF services are a major component of the department services. We have upgraded the PD's to better match industry standards. Previously we only had PD's which were essentially apprentice F/F/ level. Now add are journeymen level PD's. The kick-off for hiring happens on 1 March, 2010 when Rayjobs web-site will open and allow a job search. For more details visit the DoDFire website and open the jobs button on the left. The information sheet is not posted there yet but should be up sometime next week.
