Career Firefighter 3rd Class: These firefighters are employed by USS and perform mainly industrial field work. They are also required to maintain fleet vehicles and equipment and respond to emergency callouts for FRI when not on a field assignment. Career Firefighters receive their retainer as a direct deposit every two weeks and receive day-rate bonuses for time spent in the industrial field for USS. Career firefighters are assigned a specific unit type that they are responsible for maintaining when not on an assignment.

Duties and Responsibilities

These firefighters work an 8-hour workday while at the station, and usually 12-hour workdays when in the industrial field. The shift rotation for this position is two weeks on-duty followed by two weeks off-duty. Career firefighters are required to relocate to within the call area or may reside on-station if they choose not to relocate. These firefighters can make enough money to reliably sustain most lifestyles if they are sent into the industrial field on a semi regular basis. This position allows individuals to work only half of the year, which grants them the ability to work elsewhere for supplemental income if desired.
