  • Cobb county/Atlanta fire info

    Currently in college working on a BS in mathematics and working toward an officer commission in USMC reserves. I’ve volunteered at a local department for several years now and I want to apply to either Cobb County or Atlanta fire once I graduate and finish Marine OCS/TBS. Can anyone on here give me some information on either of those departments? How’s morale? How do pay/benefits/equipment match up to other departments in the metro area? Is there any opportunity for overtime? Thanks in advance.

    Look into Dekalb Fire as well. I don't think there's any dept in the area that fights more fire than Dekalb and they contract out their EMS transports to AMR i believe.

      Atlanta just got a decent raise. Dekalb closed their app process a while ago, so probably be another 6 months or year until they hire again.

        So how old are you?

        How many more years of college left?

        How long is Marine boot camp?

        How long is Officer school?

            If your ultimate goal/// full time job is the fire department

            To me that should be your focus now.

            steps should be start testing for depts, your last year in college.

            Get hired

            See if you still want to do reserves once you get hired.

            If you do your timeline,, you would not start testing till you are around 27 years old.

            Could hurt in that some Dept processes can drag for a year or so, plus how often a Dept tests, plus you cannot limit yourself to a few depts.

            Also if these depts want emt or paramedic or those certs would help get hired,,,, get them as soon as possible
