Looking for a job? Madison Fire & Rescue is hiring

There are four fire stations in the City of Madison, and that number could increase as the city grows.

MADISON, Alabama — Madison Fire and Rescue announced on Facebook that they're looking for EMT Certified I/II firefighters to join the team. 

"We are looking for current certified Alabama firefighter one and two firefighters with a minimum of an EMT license," PIO for Madison Fire & Rescue Ryan Gentry said.

The City of Madison has grown a lot this past year and Madison Fire is doing their best to keep up.

The job pays a competitive salary for full-time employees. Pay starts at $36,489.44 and increases up to $39,879.32 annually. 

The fire station is looking to hire people immediately, so the hiring process has been shortened.

"Depending on how many applications we get, it could be anywhere from thirty to sixty, maybe ninety days at the most compared to what can be a six to eight month process," Gentry explained.

On a personal level, the station is looking for someone that cares. 

"Are you going to make the most money in this career? Absolutely not, but you're going to get a fulfillment out of helping people in the moments that they need you the most," Gentry said. 

If you don't meet the qualifications now, Gentry predicts that the station will be hiring again in the near future. 

There are four fire departments in Madison, and that number will increase as the town grows larger. With more land development, houses and families, there will be an increased need for emergency services.
