  • Age retirement for Vol. firefighters

    In my town the retirment age for a vol. firefighter is 65 yrs old. He can stay on as a fire police untill he or she becomes 70yrs old. Do any of you have simalar rules like this. OR do any of you have postions for your older members, like driver/pump operators only . If you do please let me know and tell me what the postion entails for duty.

      No age restriction in my dept. -- our oldest member turns 90 in August. He's not running into burning buildings (we don't have any anyway), but he does come around. Our other senior members are usually the majority during the day time, as well.

        No age restriction here either. Our Chief is 70. He's not walking so well, but he is one hell of a command officer. I think it's time to change your bylaws.

          Not for us either. The older ones will dispatch and some will drive a second truck to the fire if needed.

            Our Chief is 70 also, and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon.

            We have a driver that's in his 70's. He's an area farmer, so he's always around in the daytime. He's the best tanker driver we have...probably because he doesn't get in a hurry.

              mandatory retirement at 60 here, not too many make it to that. I am 44 now, I can see doing this for another 10 - 12 years if my health holds but lets call a spade a spade this is a young mans job. If someone could figure out a wayto fit 20 years experience in a 25 year old body they would have a perfect fire fighter
