    For those who would like the Northwest...Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Fire Department is taking apps for Firefighter. Great Department to work for.

    Thumbs down Firecareers.com

    Jay,

    I received an e-mail this morning from firecareers.com regarding your post and my response to the Coeur d'Alene FD thread. They removed it completely! This job was NOT even posted on their job posting portion of their website and they completely removed it. I guess they belive over at firecareers that they have "Exclusive Rights" to every fire department job listing on the planet. I'm getting more and more tired of their censorship and tactics there.

    Good Luck,
    Jay

    I believe a certain SassyEMT was from that area.....

    any idea what their requirements are? EMT/Paramedic, Firefighter I/II, hazmat tech, etc...
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Is it common to charge an application fee, because I've never heard of such a thing? I personally thought it was pretty lame when I saw that Coeur d'Alene was charging a $10 to submit an application.

    Yes, $10 is a steal these days.
    Better get out there and apply more

    Default Kidding right??

    Your kidding right...$10.00 fee and your complaining. Coeur d'Alene Fire is a very good fire department. Smaller than I came from but great department. Up here in the Northwest budgets are not like what larger cities have and testing can be costly. We need to help defray some of the costs. If you do not want to pay the $10.00 then don't. I'm sure those who want the job badly enough won't even blink an eye when they plunk down their money. I'm with BAMM on this......you need to get out more.
    My hats off to Chief Gabriel and his fine Department.

    How silly of me. Coeur d'Alene has such a good fire that I'll bet people would even pay to even work for them, let alone apply. Heck, that would even defray more of the costs!
