Warren Fire Dept. Looking For Utility Firefighters

The City of Warren, Pa., is looking for more firefighters. The city has fewer than its normal number of utility firefighters and is looking to hire as many as four.

The part-time, flexible utility firefighter position is entry level; members respond to the same calls and perform similar functions to full-time personnel.

A typical shift is 12 to 15.5 hours, but they can be as short as four hours, or as long as 24 hours.

The current pay is $8.11 to $11.02 an hour, but fire officials expects those numbers to increase “significantly” in 2018. Utility firefighters are immediately eligible to become members of the International Association of Firefighters union.

The department usually takes on one or two utility firefighters each spring. The department promoted three members to full-time status.
