  • POLK County Hiring

    Several openings in Polk. Firefighter, Lieutenant, EMT, Paramedic. FYI, if you apply for EMT or medic, call EMS and make sure they got your app. The pay rate for Firefighter Paramedic is incorrect. It's 2.30 an hour plus .30 for patch.

              That's only for our diversity recruitment and training program.

                    I heard there were about 60 or so who applied for part-time. There were many no-shows for the written test and as of today we do not have the test scores back from the vendor. The part-time process is to generate a six month eligibility list. Currently we are at about 35 part-timers, which is more than we usually carry.

                    We also are going to be building a full-time eligibility list. Many of the existing part-timers as well as some recently certified EMS employees are expected to apply. The number of replacement part-time positions will depend on how many of the existing part-timers are selected for full-time positions. Currently there are many qualified, existing full-time EMS or part-time firefighters competing for a limited number of full-time positions. There are several openings in the works, either due to retirements or other factors, but it will be quite some time before we see a mass hiring like we were doing a few years ago. I don’t have the exact numbers but I will try and get them soon. I’m off for the rest of the week, but I’ll see what I can do.
