    Default Live - In Programs

    Does anyone use/have a Live - In Program to help recruit new members and/or increase in-house staffing? If so, what kind of incentives do you have for them? what kind of rules or guidelines do you have inplace.
    My dept. doesnt have a college in its first due area, which I know alot of departments use college live-ins and we dont run alot of calls each year but between our two stations we average 1500 calls a year.

    I hate to say it, but do a search. There are dozens of threads about it. Alot of the information you're looking for has already been covered extensivly in them. But I can suggest looking at my old department, Shepherdstown VFD in Shepherdstown WV. www.shepherdstownfiredepartment.com They have a good live-in program going on there.

    I am Live In student with the Chichester Vol. Fire Department in Chichester NH. I go to school at New Hampshire Community Technical College at Laconia. I get to stay at the station for free. In return I work from 8-5 weekdays and one weekend a month. Classes are over station time. At the station when i'm not in school.

    Yeah there are a few in Montgomery county. My old dept in Mont. co had one, so does Rockville and Kennsington does to. Im no longer in MC, But in frederick co MD and un like montgomery they were close to UMD and Montgomery college has a great fire program, frederick really doesnt have that goimg for then so Its hard to get that college going people to l;ook are way. With PG and M.C stations having more calls and close to collages its hard for us just to the northwest to get some.
