What is the career staffing for Wake Forest Fire Department these days?
Noah Rogers (Email) - 01/11/06 - 02:18

4 personnel at Station 1, 2 personnel at Station 2 for 24 hour shifts full time employees
2 personnel at Station 1 and 2 personnel at Station 2 for daytime weekday shifts, part-time employees

at least that’s how it was working, there have been some changes recently, and I don’t know exactly what, they may now have 3 full timers at Station 2

Wake Forest currently has 7 24 hour personnel on duty at a time, 4 at station 1, and 3 at station 2. We are in the process of hiring 3 more personnel to have 4 at station 2 instead of 3. There are numerous part-time employees that staff a 5th position at station 1 during the daytime hours and fill in for the full-timers when on vacation. There is budgeted for a District Chief position to be on-duty 24 hours to handle day to day operations and business, however that has not been filled yet.

Thanks for the information – the department has grown tremendously since I last visited the area – I see that there is a new ladder on order and the construction of station#3 is being talked about – I will be interested to see what happens over the next few years – thanks again!

Saw Wake Forest’s advertisement for Fire Chief. Anyone have any insight on the climate in the dept. now? What about outside candidate, are they seriously consideing outside, or are they just phishing?
