Unified Fire Authority of Greater salt Lake is hiring here is the information. It is also on their website which is http://www.unifiedfire.org/employment.aspx. March/April 2011 FIREFIGHTER AND PARAMEDIC RECRUITMENT
Unified Fire Authority will soon be conducting a recruitment for Firefighters and Paramedics. Information packets and registration forms will be available from this website or from the receptionist at our main office (3380 South 900 West, Salt Lake City, UT) by March 22, 2011. The information packets will provide you with information regarding the testing process, the testing locations, the testing times and dates and general information about the position, including job duties, minimum requirements, salary and benefit information and the likelihood of being selected. The testing process will be similar to ones we have conducted previously, but changes have been made. Please read the information packet carefully for a description of the current process.

The written exam will be held on April 9, 2011. There will be at least two examination sessions on that date.

Test registration forms must be returned by 5:00 p.m. on April 6, 2011. Only those candidates who submit a registration form will be allowed to take the written exam. Registered candidates should report to the exam at the time and location provided in the information packet.

Individuals applying for Firefighter positions are required to be certified as EMT-basic in the state of Utah prior to being hired although they may participate in the testing process without this certification. Information regarding EMT or Paramedic certification may be obtained from the Utah State Bureau of Emergency Medical Services at (801) 273-6666 or http://health.utah.gov/ems/

Individuals applying for Paramedic positions are required to be certified as a Paramedic in the State of Utah in order to be hired, and in order to participate in the testing process, they must be either certified in the state of Utah, or another state, or be nationally registered. Information regarding reciprocity involving the paramedic certification may be obtained from the Utah State Bureau of Emergency Medical Services at (801) 273-6666 or http://health.utah.gov/ems/

For those individuals hired as Paramedics, UFA recognizes time employed (as a full-time Firefighter or Paramedic) for other fire-based, paramedic-providing agencies. Credit for time is awarded on a year-for-year basis and the maximum amount that is recognized is five years. Credit for time is for pay purposes only and is not recognized for any purpose associated with the employee’s seniority date. Specific information on how this credited time affects pay, as well as the current rates of pay, will be included in the information packet that will be available during recruitment.

Paramedics are also eligible to compete for Firefighter positions, but if selected, will be hired (and paid) as firefighters. After completing a nine-month probation period, firefighters are eligible to compete for promotion to existing Firefighter Specialist (including Paramedic) vacancies. In addition, for Paramedics who are hired as firefighters, UFA does not recognize time employed as a firefighter or paramedic for other fire-based, paramedic-providing agencies.

I hope this will help someone get the greatest job in the world.

Roger,
What is your website where the careers are posted? Also, Is there a age limit on some of these. I know our town just hired but the age limit is 35.

Thanks
Steve
Hello Steve,

My website is Firefighter Connection.com Then go to the "Departments Hiring" tab. As for the question on the age limit. It really depends on the Department. My departmetn has no age limit. The oldest person we've hired was 46.

Have a great week, be safe,
