  • Where are all the wisconsinites

    Hey every one, i have noticed not alot of activity on wisconsin's threads. I am starting to get into firefighting, and i was just wondering what is going on around the state? What's going on with Stations hiring, and when are dept's going to be hiring?

    I'm from WI. I just took my practical for firefighter 1 today. So now that I'm certified in that a few more doors will open up for me. Also takin my EMT-B in spring.

    I know Madison is hiring. Apps are due by Jan 12 I think. That's the only big city dept. I know of.

          Howdy Fellow Cheddarheads!

          I am from Tomahawk, however at the moment I am displaced to Balad Iraq for the next 300 days or so. Up to the point of my career change I was a firefighter EMT for Nokomis Fire in Northern Wisconsin and a full time Paramedic for Lincoln County Ambulance Tomahawk Division.

          Stay safe and good luck in your career aspirations.

            Thanks. I'm from Oak Creek, just south of Milwaukee if you aren't sure. It's about a 40 minute drive from Brown Deer. Are you on a dept?

            Nope MATC. I don't belong to a department yet. Possibly getting a POC job with South Milwaukee. Would be nice for the time being until I get a full-time job somewhere.



            Good luck in Iraq Medic. I'm sure you'll make all of us and the rest of the country proud.

              Just reading a couple threads there, so to those looking for a job, good luck. Also don't give up, try to get as much education as you can. That includes getting on a volly dept, get EMT, even medic.

              As for looking for jobs, if you look into www.firerecruit.com that will give you info on who is hiring. It worked for me. Also, Green Bay will be hiring in April and there is talk of several retirements this year, so possible to have 2 hirings this year.

              As for Madison, good luck to you. The written test is OK..most of it is psychological. The physical is pretty tough, but not bad if you work out. I went to school at MATC Madison, so I was at those facilities quite a bit. Anyway good luck to you all.

                  I think everyone from Wisconsin are still Crying that the Bears are in the Superbowl and they won't have Brett Favre next year.

                        you are from the falls, i work their as a police aide right now. Also are you full time or are you POC, or stand by. I was thinking about going on stand by for the falls they have a great crew out there from what i have seen. Are you going to madison for the testing, or staying with the falls.

                          Written Test for Madison

                          Got back from taking the Madison Written test, and i would have to say i feel i did pretty well. It only took me about 2 hours to complete, and we had 3.5 hours to complete it in. Anyone else take the test as well.
