  • Resume for Fire Coordinator

    Does anybody have or know where I can get a sample of a resume for a fire coordinator job?

      Yes, next time it becomes available. Trying to be proactive.

        Forgive my ignorance, but what is a fire coordinator? is that a mutual aid coordinator? is that a chief level position within the department? are there any stated requirements within the job posting? is it a paid position, a volunteer position, or a volunteer position held by paid firefighters?

        I think you be better off by asking an existing fire coordinator what his resume looks like, and what they typically look for in position.
        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!

          Two questions:

          What is a fire coordinator?

          Do you think you should be applying for a job for which you aren't even able to put a resume together?

            My best advice is look at the job requirements and everything for that agency's announcement, and tailor your resume and hopefully interview off of that.

            You might be able to pull and old one from them off the internet, or their HR maybe nice and give you what they have on file.

              Sounds like he's in NY state.

              The fire coordinator could be referred to as the mutual aid coordinator. It is a county level position and ultimately answers to the CEO of the county. They often also coordinate training within a county, and are also often the emergency manager.

              Our fire coordinator also runs (through an assistant) the 9-1-1 center.

              Our fire coordinator and his assistant are full-time. The deputy coordinators are volunteers - oftimes "retired" volunteer chiefs.

              On a fire scene the coordinators (full time and volunteer) serve only to advise, since the incident commander actually owns the scene. They have been known to assist in other ways, such as water supply, rehab, etc if there is not an officer otherwise available to handle the task. They will also assist with acquiring resources above and beyond what the IC will normally draw from (state haz spill, heavy equipment from municipalities or contractors, etc).

              Any time a fire goes above what serves as a first alarm, you'll usually see one show up on scene.

              While I could probably write myself a decent resume' for the job based on my knowledge of the coordinators job acquired over the years, having information about what is desired in a candidate would certainly help me include the appropriate information. But I'm not looking for the job.

              One might also consider contacting the county personnel department and asking for the job description...

              Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

              Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                Thanks. Good info. In my county of residence the Fire Marshall's office handles mutual aid coordination.

                IN NYC it is through the emergency management office.
