Firefighting is the basic "bread and butter" of any fire department. The City of Madison employs 338 firefighters, some of whom are also officers, paramedics, or apparatus engineers. No matter what your job in the fire station is, you're still a firefighter. Besides extensive training in firefighting, all firefighters are also Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), and hazardous material technicians. Many firefighters become members of Special Teams within the Department, skilled in technical rescue (high places and confined spaces), scuba, or additional hazardous material specialties. Firefighters work unusual shifts, they're on a day, off a day, on a day, and off for four days. They come into work at 7 am and go home the next day at 7 am. Our Department fire engines and ladders are each staffed with four firefighters.
