  • Austin Fire

    Looking for some information on Austin Fire, real information, not run stats.

    Morale, schedule, how often are you going to fires, does the city let you get inside and do your job, are they a defensive/clean cab concept dept, ambulances, ambulance rotation,anything you can offer up.

    Weve considered moving from VA, and I?d be willing to go through another academy for a good aggressive dept.

    thanks in advance.

    If you can get a job in Austin you should absolutely jump on it. It is not going to be as aggressive as What you would get in Houston as an average sample, but 1st due officers have a lot of leeway so you just need to pick the right one and you will get work. EMS is a separate agency, AFD does no transport or priority 4 or 5 EMS, but 1 or 2 FF’s will assist patient care enroute when things get crazy. The fire department is 99% BLS providers but there is a process to system clear to higher levels for those who want it. Morale is crazy high. Spots at the busiest houses are the hardest to come by. There is a lot of division of labor which creates a high level of ownership at each rank. The only bad thing about working at Austin is a 24/48 with a shift change at noon. If you haven’t worked a 48/96 then you’ll probably love the schedule
