    Default Who's Hiring In Florida?

    What departments are hiring and what are the minimum requirements? I am moving down from Michigan and want to start applying. Would really like to know of the departments that send you through the academy. I have all my certs. here in Michigan for firefighter and know that my certs dont transfer. Thank you for all your help. I do appreciate it.

    everyone is hiring IF you have Florida certs. occasionally Gainesville will hiore non certified FF, you also can check out floridafirejobs.org, they are a testing agency for Southwest Fla (Ft. Myers/Naples). Im trying to challenge the medic test and work as a medic i will go back to fire school for 1&2, even tho im already a FFII in ohio.

    They are the same department.

    Clearwater may be hireing as many as 40 in the next year. I just read an article in the paper that says at least some of these new positions are in the proposed budget for '06. And about a month ago, there was an article that said Hillsburough county (Tampa area) could be adding as many as 200.

    I dont know of any departments in this area (Tampa/St.Pete) that will hire you if your not Fla fire certified, unless you are Fla paramadeic certified.

    St. Johns in hiring in January, 30-35 possibly. I know that you will need you Florida Standards and Florida EMT. Also, Jacksonville won't be hiring for a while, they are on a hiring freeze until next year some time. Good Luck

    St. Lucie County is hiring now. Requirements are Florida FF/EMT, Florida FF/Paramedic, or Paramedic and they will put you through Fire school. I think they are hiring 25 or so. Here is a link to their site...
