Employment & Recruiting

Congratulations to all who made it to the Command Staff Interviews in December 2016. We had a highly qualified group of candidates this year, and the selection process was difficult. Everyone that made it to the Command Staff Interviews is to be commended. It is most certainly no small accomplishment.

Below are links to the lists of those that are receiving job offers as medically certified, and those that are receiving job offers through CornerStone Staffing to attend EMT B/I training. I have also included our alternate lists for both. The alternate lists are sorted by ranking, and will be used should there be a need to add additional personnel this year. As in previous postings, the names are by order number, the first two letters of the last name, and the first two letters of the first name.

For those that weren’t offered jobs this year, we sincerely thank you for being a part of our process. Please consider applying with us again later in 2017.
