    Default Where are all the wisconsinites

    Hey every one, i have noticed not alot of activity on wisconsin's threads. I am starting to get into firefighting, and i was just wondering what is going on around the state? What's going on with Stations hiring, and when are dept's going to be hiring?

Very nice facilities there, and awesome people to talk to. Let me know what you do, and another thing where are you from?

    Howdy Fellow Cheddarheads!

    I am from Tomahawk, however at the moment I am displaced to Balad Iraq for the next 300 days or so. Up to the point of my career change I was a firefighter EMT for Nokomis Fire in Northern Wisconsin and a full time Paramedic for Lincoln County Ambulance Tomahawk Division.

    Stay safe and good luck in your career aspirations.

    Thanks. I'm from Oak Creek, just south of Milwaukee if you aren't sure. It's about a 40 minute drive from Brown Deer. Are you on a dept?

    Nope MATC. I don't belong to a department yet. Possibly getting a POC job with South Milwaukee. Would be nice for the time being until I get a full-time job somewhere.



    Good luck in Iraq Medic. I'm sure you'll make all of us and the rest of the country proud.

    Just reading a couple threads there, so to those looking for a job, good luck. Also don't give up, try to get as much education as you can. That includes getting on a volly dept, get EMT, even medic.

    As for looking for jobs, if you look into www.firerecruit.com that will give you info on who is hiring. It worked for me. Also, Green Bay will be hiring in April and there is talk of several retirements this year, so possible to have 2 hirings this year.

    As for Madison, good luck to you. The written test is OK..most of it is psychological. The physical is pretty tough, but not bad if you work out. I went to school at MATC Madison, so I was at those facilities quite a bit. Anyway good luck to you all.

    Default Written Test for Madison

    Got back from taking the Madison Written test, and i would have to say i feel i did pretty well. It only took me about 2 hours to complete, and we had 3.5 hours to complete it in. Anyone else take the test as well.

    hey sorry it took me so long to get back.

    I am Station 1, brand new, finishing up Fire I, am paid on call and I live on right off of shady lane.

    My full time job (where I am now) is working for an life insurance company as a project manager, I really like my job, so I won't be going full time in fire.

    The falls DOES have a great crew. I love it.

    I took the Madison test as well. Hope I did okay. I just had an interview the other day for a POC position at South Milwaukee. Went well.

I had an interview about 2 weeks ago with Thiensville POC thought it went well, so we shall see. i wont know anything until March to see if the village board approves.

    I'm from Oak Creek. I just got a call today to schedule my physical, which is Friday. So everything is going great so far. If you want to work POC for SM, then you would have to move closer. They just recently moved the limits out to Oak Creek and Cudahy because they couldn't get enough South Milwaukee residents. I'd say give them a call if you're willing to relocate. They Chief is a great guy. Where's Theinsville? Good luck with that though.

    Thumbs up plisken

    Hey DFurtman, Superior should be opening soon, Our list expires in june so the City should be accepting apps soon. Duluth has hired 14 in the last 2 months so their list has to be getting short. I've been with superior for 5 years now, it is a good department, Not alot of retirements cumming up though. In duluth it has become a mass exitess due to the healthcare issue. ? on weather they will hold on to the number in the staffing, might lose 3 engine ( not 3 engines) just headquarters #3 engine, if you have any questions drop me a post I check in every shift to see what people are talking about. catch you later
