Resident firefighters are responsible for their own food and meals. A room, uniforms and firefighting equipment is provided at no cost to you. All utilities such as power, heating, etc are paid by the City.
Every resident will have their own room. Residents share the kitchen facilities, lounge, restrooms, and other facilities.
Resident firefighters are on duty twice each week during daytime hours and are required to designate one shift weekly to respond after normal business hours. Duty shifts are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Schedules will be determined by current residents in attempt to correlate everyone’s best availability.
Prior firefighting experience is not necessary. Upon admission as a resident firefighter you will be required to complete on-shift training to meet minimum standards of the department as a firefighter. Training and competency must be achieved within a set period of time once residency begins. All training and certifications are taught in-house, with National Certifications, at no cost to the individual.
