    Same question here, what is a Class C firefighter???

    This is how is works here:

    *Explorer
    *Honorary member- given to honored retired members
    *Associate member- does nothing but observe, and I don't know of any.
    *Auxillary member
    *Probationary Firefighter
    *Firefighter
    *Sr. Firefighter- if officer not present
    *Lieutenant- there are two, which ever one is first on scene takes command until relieved by higher ranking officer.
    *Captain
    *Asst. Chief
    *Chief

      Seriously though, how does a class c differ from others?
      well to be honest the only class c firefighter i know of for sure is my dad, who's on the fire police these days. i really dont know what makes someone a class c firefighter, but i'd have to assume it's mostly fire police and some of the older guys who have let the physicals and what not slide. my dad doesnt partake in the firefighting operations anymore, he does drive on occasion. i guess class c means stay away from the fire.

              Asst. Chief
              Deputy Chief
              Capts.
              Lts.

              And now, our County Wide operation.......


              County Fire Chief
              County Deputy Chief
              County Asst Chiefs (some Career, some Volunteer)

              When the rank is equal, the person from the first due station is in charge. I know that this would not work everywhere, but we have few problems with it, and those are usually younger "Ego trips". Stay Safe....

                        Well the traditional hierarchy in my volly FD is as follows:

                        Chief
                        Assistant Chief
                        Captain
                        Lieutenant
                        MPO
                        Firefighter
                        Probie

                        As Chief I prefer to look at it this way in the order of actual importance:

                        Firefighter
                        MPO
                        Lieutenant
                        Captain
                        A/C
                        Chief

                        It has always been my contention that if as a chief your primary job is to make the troops look good, you make the FD look good, and maybe by trickle down even make yourself look good too! If as an officer your primary goal is to make youself look good it isn't the best for the organization.

                        Maybe it's not too late
