Paid Call Firefighter
CAL FIRE / San Luis
Obispo County Fire is a combination department in that it uses both
career and paid-call firefighters in reaching our mission. We
refer to the Paid Call Firefighters (PCFs) because they are paid for
each call to which they respond. Paid Call Firefighters
provide fire protection, emergency medical service, hazardous
materials responses and other services to the communities in which
they live and/or work.
Call Firefighters join the fire department for chances to contribute
to the community and learn new skills, for the opportunity to save
lives, and camaraderie. Many are future career firefighters
honing their skills while waiting for a full time position. Others
come from the community with the united mission to make a difference
in the community the serve. They are a cost efficient method used to
increase staffing and provide a elevated levels of service.
We are actively recruiting Paid Call Firefighters
to help protect their community. Paid Call Firefighters respond to
emergencies from their home or work. If you are interested in
becoming a Paid Call Firefighter (volunteer), please contact the
fire station closest to your home.
