Detroit Fire Department Looking For New Hires Amid Bankruptcy Crisis

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit Fire Department has the “Help Wanted” sign out.

Since the City of Detroit has filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy and city pensions are up in the air, it may not be a job many would consider.

Firefighters are paid from $29,352 dollars a year up to more than $47,000.

Requirements include:

  • Passing a written and physical test
  • An Eemergency Medical Technician (EMT) License is preferred.
