    Hey everybody, I have a few questions about Alexandria VA EMS but I can't seem to find any info on it. First, do Alexandria paramedics have to be firefighters as well? What is the hiring process like? What shift schedule do you work? And last but not least How much is the starting salary? Thanks for your input.

    Alexandria is a fire-based EMS system, and the schedules go as such:

    Fire Suppression: 56-Hour Week
    Work 24 hours Off 24 hours
    Work 24 hours Off 24 hours
    Work 24 hours Off 4 Days

    Emergency Medical Services: 42-Hour Week
    Work 24 hours Off 48 hours
    Work 24 hours Off 4 Days

    Look through the site. I know they were looking for a firefighter/paramedic according to 911hotjobs. Good luck!

    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong

      No. Although the Paramedics are employees of the fire department and run out of the fire houses, they are Single Role. There are a hand full of Firefighter/Paramedics, but I am lead to believe they are not as effectively utilized on the fire apparatus as they could be.
