    Wow, I sure feel lucky. Been a volunteer with my department for almost 4 years now, been hired almost a full 3 months, and loving every minute! Im 22, an EMT B with a department that covers around 9 square miles with 2 stations and making 85% of full firefighter pay at $5055 a month (61k a year). Next year will be $5300 a month (63k a year), the next around $5600 a month (67k a year) and finally my fourth year I will be making around $5900 (70k a year). Granted we may have a cost of living increase in the next few years, and this does not include OT. We work a modified detroit schedule with 13 kelly days.

    I guess its not. I just looked back through and I guess people are pretty open with where they work. Sorry, new guy on the boards! I work for the North Highline Fire District. We are just south of West Seattle, cover White Center, part of Burien with whom we share our southern boarder with, and boarder Tukwilla and the City of SeaTac on our East flanks.

    Thats kindof EXACTLY it! Haha! The last thing I need is this coming back around to bite me in the butt! Its a great little department, strong in tradition and we hire out of our volunteer pool. We dont in fact have medics as they are provided by the county. Im not too worried about saying where Im from on these boards. I trust you all like I would if we happen to be at the same scene. Brothers and sisters in blue.

    Hydrant22,
    There's nothing to worry about. Just don't get into anything contraversal untill your probation is done. Other than that be proud of who you are and where you're from. There are some on these forums who hide behind a screen name or lie about where they're from. We've seen a lot of that over the years. I'm not sure why they do it but the word coward comes to mind.

    Default Nj

    Northern NJ, Outside of New York City

    Firefighter: 1st Year $49,000.00

    Firefighter/EMT-B: 1st Year $54,600.00

    Firefighter/Paramedic: 1st Year $62,400.00 (Rare in NJ, most Dept's NO ALS)

    Lieutenant: 1st Year $75,400.00

    Captain: 1st Year $85,800.00

    Battalion Chief: 1st Year $93,600.00

    Work Schedule: 24 hours on, 72 hours off, kelly day every six shifts. Overtime is not see easy to come by.

    This may seem like alot, but in Northern NJ, a 3 bedroom 2 bath home on a normal size lot sells for around $675,000 - $750,000. Hence the reason that most of the guys that work up north live in central and southern NJ. Housing is much much cheeper. There are a few paid departments in Central and Souther NJ, however the pay is in no way comparable. Starting salary for a Firefighter/EMT-B in most places in Southern NJ is about $32,000 per year. Thanks and stay safe.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
