JOB POSITION: Part-Time Firefighter/Paramedic
The Pleasant Township Fire Department located in South Western Franklin County is seeking to fill part time positions. Once orientation training is completed part time members are assigned to a unit day and have the opportunity to work a “provisional” or every 6th day schedule, or can work per diem according to their schedule. Part-time members must work a minimum of 18 hours per month.
Pleasant Township is a suburb of Columbus consisting of 43 square miles with a population of approximately 7,000 permanent residents. The department responds to nearly 1,300 calls for service from a single firehouse staffing a Rescue Engine and Medic as primary equipment daily. Other equipment includes a 3,000 gallon tanker, state of the art grass fire vehicle, as well as water and agricultural technical rescue capabilities. The department maintains a reserve engine and medic as well. In 2021 we responded to 57 working fires. We consistently provide mutual aid to departments in 3 counties.
Working under the direction of a shift Lieutenant, daily staffing is 5-7 personnel per day with multiple shifts available daily for part time members. Other benefits include access to state of the art fitness facility, ability to attend training outside of the department, holiday pay for 10 holidays annually, uniforms.
In the past five years the department has upgraded over $1.5 million in equipment to include new 2018 rescue engine, remounted 2018 medic, SCBA’s, turnout gear, radios, cardiac monitors, power cots, Lucas III CPR devices and various other systems and equipment. We are expecting delivery of a new medic and e-draulic extrication tools and other extrication equipment this year.
