08/27/12 118 W, 1 I - + 8 - 6 Cary Fire Department is Hiring

The Cary Fire Department is hiring for certified firefighters. Minimum qualifications included North Carolina Firefighter I and II, North Carolina EMT, and North Carolina Technical Rescuer (times two) certifications. (If pursuing one of the certifications through a North Carolina community college, or accredited agency, the coursework must be satisfactorily completed by January 14, 2013.)

Starting salary is $34,736. Hiring is expected in January, with successful candidates completing an eight-week academy. Open houses for interested applicants will be held at Fire Station 1 from 10:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 9. Applications are being accepted through Monday, September 10. Good luck to all! Read the job posting.

As noted there will be an 8 week academy. This is not the first time they have asked for already certified firefighters. It cuts the amount of time needed for an academy, saving the department tens of thousands of dollars to host a full 6 month academy. It also puts the personnel on the trucks quicker instead of paying them to sit through 6 months worth of an academy.
