  • Breaking the $100,000

    With the year drawing to an end. I started woundering,besides the California FF's. Who well break the $100,000 dollar mark this year across the country?

    I won't, at least not with the fire job. BUT some of the guys I work with will. I would venture to guess alot of Connecticut firefighters will. Top step firefighter in this state is between $50k - $70k. This is a 42 hour week. Add some overtime hound to that and BOOM you got $100k. This does not take into effect promotional positions ie: driver, officer, batt chief.

      Inquiring minds want to know and so does the IRS.

        Not me, I had a good year for OT but I'm just a little over 1/2 that amount.

          I couldn't buy overtime this year. Only worked one overtime day all year!

            The OT is crazy here right now. I have a pretty strong feeling that retirements have started to outpace the academy production of new cadets.

                  Do I count the 3 1/2 years back pay I received after another long drawn out contract negotiation?

                    Same situation, but I'm about $65K short. I'll be around $35K short once we add in the wife's salary.

                        Between part time gig and full time I am about $54k short but only about $20k with the wife's salary. But then again I bet that our cost of living isn't what it is in Florida or Cali

                          Yeah I (we, actually) do. That's even with the medic stipend

                          Just can't get our city manager convinced we're underpaid, and doubt we will. The generous man cut out our step raises for a few years to pay for other projects.

                            Just a side note....And you already know this...Making 100k or more is nice. But if youre very happy with your current situation, (job, home, spouce, family, hobbies, etc...) that figure is really not that big of a deal.

                            I have cracked 100k over the last three years and I really care about is living a nice, balanced life.

                              I dont have a name, but there is one fellah down here in Fairfax Co who habitually takes in better than 200K a year. Locally they publish a listing of all Co employees and their yearly gross just after tax season. Before the list was published this past year, I heard a lot of 'buzz' about who might be the Top Dog. Apparently "he" is a regular #1.

                              I should specify, more than 1/2 of it is overtime.
