    Default Detroit FD

    Has anybody heard anything about when detroit plans to start hiring again. Kwame has said the city plans to hire around 60 and the commisioner said in the Free Press that they would be hiring "in the near future". Just wanted to see if there was any truth to this or if anybody has heard anything. Thanks

    Were always hiring if you have your EMT-B or higher, we are a 3rd service department so that mean we have our own EMS which runs out of each engine house. If you have fire and EMT certs. you would have a even bigger chip on your resume when they start bumping people up to just fire companies.

    A friend of mine who works on the eastside said that he heard a rumor of the department taking applications within the next two months. Does anybody know if this is true or not?

    Just as an update I called just a few minutes ago and spoke to a nice lady who basically told me that there will be PSA's all over and when I asked her about knowing any time line she said they haven't given a exact date but be on the look out. SO hopefully soon!!

    Oh and she said if your in the Detroit area you can go to the Coleman young municpal building and fill out a card that announces when it open they will notify you by mail...but if you not in the Detroit area you cannot do it over the phone or any other way just in person unless you have a buddy help you out...

    So who can fill one out for me ?

    fire an ems are 2 diffrent divisons ems does not ride fire rigs nor does fire ride ems units
    ems just put a class in the field, an they seem to hire more than fire does if you have ur certs b-emt or advanced- emt apply an work for ems, you can try to do lat move to fire division later on.
