    Just a FYI about the NFD:

    31 full time suppression personnel (captain, lieutenant, six firefighters), 2 stations, 1600-1800 runs per year (We have about 20 to 25 working structure fires per year), no EMS. We run 2 engines and a ladder or heavy rescue (same crew).

    3 staff chiefs (I'm one of them) and 2 inspectors in the fire marshal's office.

    Great place to work, very good benefits (lots of OT), and a good group of fire fighters who take the job seriously.

    I was just wondering if you needed to be a CT resident to apply. It doesn't say anything about residency but it does say you need a valid CT license.

    Question 10 years?

    10 years as an EMT? Is that a new requirement?

    Maintaining EMT for 10 years has been part of the hiring requirement for the last couple of tests. While we are not a primary medical responder, we do assist the ambulance crew at MVA's.

    Cash or personal check is OK for the application.

    Do not use that application-the version at the at the NFD has a line for a Notary Public seal and asks for information above the generic town application. There is additional information about the test in the packet.

    I sent out my application today- the one I found on the website. I had the notary notarize the bottom portion in the blank space. What will happen now? I live quite a distance and there is no way I can pick up an application in person. If they won't accept the application will they send back my money order??
    Thanks

    No volunteer firefighters left in town. The volly house went career in 1985, the VFD disbanded two years ago.

    FWIW, I've wondered about this one before, too. Naugy isn't the only one to phrase it that way -- our town still says "valid CT license" on applications despite the fact that we have no residency requirement. (And two guys living out of state at the moment... One of the benefits of 24 on, 72 off.)

    I suspect it's just an oversight but it's the sort of thing someone with a residence outside of CT should verify before applying.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    The HR department decided to keep the CT drivers license requirement in place. While we do have a callback system, response is voluntary (members are paid if they respond when called back).

    We used to have a 20 minute from fire HQ rule, but it was never enforced. This is just a hold over from that requirement. When I put my applicaion in back in 1983, you had to be a town resident for two years just to apply. No restriction on where you lived after you were hired.

    It took some work, but I did get the Fire Commission to agree to drop Fire Fighter I certification as a requirement for application. All new hires go to the CT Fire Academy recruit program regardless of previous training or certification.

    Good luck on your interview. Two (out of four) of our LT's and one fire fighter are instructors at Wolcott. The director of the school is a captain and I've been an instructor there for 20+ years.
