  • HOW TO GET STAFFING

    I AM A NEW CAPTAIN AT A SMALL VOLUNTEER DEPARTMENT. WE RUN 2 ENGINES AND ONE TRUCK. WE HAVE BARELY ENOUGH STAFFING TO FILL ONE ENGINE. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD ANY IDEAS TO INCREASE STAFFING LEVELS. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

    Does your department run EMS?
    "I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we know the work which a fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling."

            First, What does the chief think, before you step on his toes ask to have an officers meeting.find out what is your magic number of staff you what and can aford to put in bunker gear.

            Remember to staff for daytime as well nighttime, we still have fires at 10 am too.


            The best way I have found is word of your mouth. Let ALL your firefighters know that we need warmish bodys in the FD. Have them talk to there frinds and family members.
            Also talk to all diferent people you know. Most people think that every thing at the FD is find unless YOU tell them so. and that person might not join but he might know some body that will...
