  • Every area is different. Where we are the pay is weekly and they work 48 hours on and 48 hours off.

  • Another thing you might want to consider is what's taking place with regards to pension reform in your town/state. Often, police and firefighters have wonderful retirement benefits but they are being targeted, especially for newbies; with budgets being blown, they are looking at doing away with pensions as a means to restore some dollars.
