    I have a correction to make about the original post. I originally thought Feb 2 was the cut-off date to apply. This NOT the case. Applications are available through Feb 2nd. Completed packets must be re-submitted by Feb 9th. That gives everyone an extra week.

    Also, people applying from long distances are being allowed to submit the packet my mail. Call the number and discuss your particular circumstance to HR and they will guide you through.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    Yeah I always hear that about the South - how progressive they are!
    I am a complacent liability to the fire service

    Default job offer

    To anyone on the department that can help, I have a couple questions.
    I recieved a call today from the department offering me a conditional offer of employment for the Fire MEDIC position contigent on me passing the medical and PAT. They said I would be in the academy starting on March 5th if I pass. I was wondering if you could provide me some info on what I can expect from the academy, like curriculum and any other info. Also, what I can expect once on shift. Am I going to ride the box everyday, or am I going to get some engine time? I live for fire and don't mind being a medic if I have to, is this the right spot for me?

    No,the Mayor and most of the ciy council just have their heads somewhere too nasty to mention in this family paper.
    One of them was on the local news griping about the amount of overtime paid to firefighters who have to work extra due to shortfalls in manning.
    I think the city council and the Mayor should have to explain why they aren't grateful to those that risk life and limb to keep people's bad days from getting worse.
