Do you hire firefighters from ems or still have to test?

Yes it would be a paramedic firefighter position

I’m sorry, but I thought “minimum wage was $15 an hour ... and even that is not enough for all you do!!!! First responders deserve so much more for all you do !!!!!!

Is there a paramedic position to promote into?

REALLY, $12.00 and hour, flipping burgers at McDonalds pays that, At least give these up and coming first responders a fair wage for the schooling they have started. Just Saying.

In all due respect, I believe that most of the shares for this posting is the absurd rate of pay. Per transparent California, the median pay of your city workers is $85,510. At $12/hr, that equates to 29% of the median income. We all know that California is ridiculously expensive, so this starting rate of pay excludes many people who aren’t born with a silver spoon, living at home, and has zero debt to their name. Moreover, at 29% of the median income in your city, it shows that there is a disproportionate amount of money going towards jobs that aren’t as critical as an EMT. As I’ve stated, take a hard look at the rate of pay. I would LOVE to be an EMT, but can’t afford to be one.

Where can i apply

Everyone who’s complaining about pay is probably burned out... You’re in the wrong profession if you do this job for the money. Most of you probably didn’t start as a volunteer. That’s what’s wrong with the fire service. The younger generation just expects to be handed a 100k/year job with no experience and no dues paid. This is a great opportunity to work for a great department in a beautiful location. Who knows, you work your butt off maybe you have a good chance at the next FF announcement.........

Wage is shameful

You should consider raising your wage. No one can live on this.
