      Castle Rock FD is hiring.
      I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

              Are you currently a Maine resident or are you looking to move to the state? Do you want to ride the meat wagon? Most of the departments are combination career/call, even more have all call guys with maybe 1-3 guys that work days. There are not too many ALL career departments.

                  Then you have little hope of obtaining a career firefighting position.

                    Waterville does all fire, but responds to medicals with the rescue. So that may be a start. They are one of the larger departments.

                      Well it is a very nice place to live let me give you the break down of Depts again.

                      Porland (largest city)- Fire & EMS you will be on the Ambulance.

                      Lewiston (2nd Largest)-ALL FIRE very limited EMS only to Cardiac Arrest and MVA's ect. No Ambulance.

                      Bangor (3rd Largest) Your going to medic school and will be on the Ambulance.

                      South Portland-Ambulance

                      Sanford-Hires Medics to run the Ambulance so you wouldnt have to do it there.

                      Wells-Town runs it's own Ambulance.

                      Saco/Biddeford/Old Orchard-Ambulance

                      Scarborough-Ambulance

                      Auburn-Just got rid of the Ambulance!!!

                      Augusta-Ambulance

                      Rockland-Ambulance

                      Brunswick/Bath- Ambulance

                      Waterville-No Ambulance but when I tested there in 2006 the pay was awful not sure if it changed at all.

                      Portland is a great job I would definatly test there but they just tested so it will like 2 years I think. Lewiston, Auburn, Sanford, Wells, Waterville is probably what you want to look into if you don't want much EMS. Budgets have been a problem just like everyone else in the country and there have been layoff's but most of these places have recently hired or will be shortly. I work in Lewiston I've been there 4 years any questions hit me up.
