Closing:
Until Filled
Salary:
Grade F13 - $33, 873.22


JOB SUMMARY:

This position will ensure rapid response to fire alarms throughout the County to protect the lives of those involved to the best of his ability.

1. Response – The incumbent is responsible for responding to all requests for assistance. This includes driving the truck, assess the situation upon arrival, and initiate the appropriate intervention to mitigate the incident back to safety. This includes using the resources of law enforcement, HAZMAT, EMS, or any other needed to provide the necessary assistance to protect lives and property and return the area to safety. When first on the scene, this position will operate as the Incident Commander unless someone of higher authority arrives.

2. Equipment maintenance – This position will inspect, maintain, test, clean and repair/arrange for repair of all fire apparatus, equipment, and gear to ensure proper operation, certification, fit, readiness and cleanliness for instant use.
