Firefighter Positions - Fairfield, CA!

The Cordelia Fire Protection District (Fairfield, CA - Northern California, between Sacramento and San Francisco) is accepting applications for over 20 positions for Firefighter/EMT, Firefighter/Paramedic and Firefighter/Engineer. 
 
Their requirements are a current CPAT, EMT and Firefighter 1 Academy graduation. These are immediate openings. 
 
Though the position pays $25 per 24 hour shift, Firefighters will be paid quarterly. They are also all-risk so structure, vehicle, vegetation fires happening within the county are all calls they are responding to and providing service for. This is a fantastic experience as it provides exposure to neighbouring agencies, unique calls within in their district and prepares candidates to be successful not only on probation, but throughout their careers. Another perk is they offer Driver/Operator 1A-1B in-house for free to those individuals interested and who are off probation.
