Question about staffing definitions
I am gearing up for next year and was wondering, if our department has people who are paid on premise from 6am-6pm along with volunteers are we a combo / paid / or something else.
Thanks in advance for any input

I think they officially switched to "primarily volunteer/combination" and "primarily paid/combination".
Per definition it only takes 1 paid person to be a combination department, and 1 volunteer to be a combination department, which is why the thought went to the above clarifications. Career is only when all personnel participating in emergency ops are paid, and volunteer is when all emergency ops personnel are not paid at all. Volunteer/POC is it's own designation now as well I believe.
Volunteer departments can pay adminstrators and maintenance people and still be all volunteer, it only concerns the FFing ranks.
