Owen Sound Hiring

Postby FF80 » Sat Nov 23, 2013 8:08 pm

Looks like Owen Sound is doing a hiring. It is posted on the city website closing Dec 6 2013. Looks like they maybe hiring more than just one potentially. Great city if you are looking for a job.

I was just wondering if anyone would be able to help me out with a little information? I am wondering if Owen Sound works a 24hr shift schedule, and do they have any residency requirements. I would love to throw my name in for this, but could never convince my wife to move from niagara up there.. Thanks!

They're on a 10/14 hour split day, five on five off with 24 hour Sunday and when you're on your shift week but not at the hall you're on call incase a 2nd alarm comes in since they only have one station. Therefore, yes you do need to live within city boundaries.

Do they require you to live within city boundaries before applying or is there a chance they bring you on with an expectation you move within city limits by such and such a date?
Thanks

I hope they'll give applicants the chance to move as it doesn't say anywhere on the job posting that you have to live within the city boundaries at the time of application.
Keep Calm and Chive On

You'll have to be residing somewhere within 5km of the hall I believe before you're on the floor.

Is Owen Sound Fire Composite?

From the dept. website:

"The department has 26 full time Firefighters, 1 full time Training Officer, and 2 full time Fire Prevention Professionals."

I seem to recall there has been some debate in the local news about a composite vs full time model. If they expect their full time firefighters to be on call after a full day or night shift they need to either hire a new shift or get some volunteers to supplement the ranks.

Any idea how many positions are open and how quick they want to move along with the process?

Thinking of throwing my name in the hat too - I just don't graduate(receive all my certs) until the middle of February...
