A recruitment drive for paramedics by the DC Fire and EMS Department will be part of the US Department of Labor's Workforce Recovery Conference, Thursday, January 10, at the Washington Convention Center, Hall D.
The department will be among more than 200 agencies and companies taking part in the conference designed to introduce employment options to those who have been adversely affected by the economic downturn resulting from the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.
"We are delighted that the Department of Labor has given us another opportunity to expose job applicants to the merits of serving the public as an employee of our department," said Deputy Fire Chief for Training Daniel Mott. "The profile of first responders has received a new level of respect, and we welcome those who seek to join our ranks," said Mott.
Currently, the Department is recruiting for the following positions: basic paramedic and supervisory paramedic. Information regarding other career opportunities also will be provided.
The DOL Workforce Recovery Conference will run from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm DC Fire/EMS Department recruitment personnel will be located at booth number 308. Click here for more information.
