Firefighter Paramedics (2 Positions Open)

The Town of Pelham is seeking lateral transfers for two full-time Firefighter-Paramedics or Advanced EMTs and to also create an eligibility list for future openings. Be part of our great team!

We are a very progressive fire department with the best town support, gear, equipment and training. Our people have attended the Maryland Fire Academy, the National Fire Academy, FDIC, IAFC
seminars, NFPA meetings and countless conventions and seminars. Our new federal grant added a 5th on-duty firefighter. Our smaller department means you get to be involved in all aspects of a fire and
EMS job, our one station means you go on every call in town - no sitting back and listening to others going to work. Our two-tiered ALS system gives paramedics the flexibility to treat patients when
needed or stay available when not needed. We have paramedics at every rank, which means the officers and chiefs understand and fully support ALS. We are always moving forward, and our 3-year
reorganization plan calls for adding 4 Battalion Chiefs working out of a BC’s car 24/7.
