Fire Officer job opportunities:  One at Truax Field in Madison one at Volk Field.

We are looking for a couple of good people to join our Fire Department Management Teams.

Truax Field is the home of the 115th Fighter Wing with F-16 fighter aircraft assigned.  Our coverage area is the Dane County Regional Airport and we are active members of MABAS Division 115.    Truax FD has 31 State Fire Fighters and a Military Fire Chief on the career side as well as 27 traditional Air National Guard Fire Fighters who work at the station on Guard Drill weekends. We have very recently earned Accredited status with CPSE.

Volk Field is one of four Air National Guard Training Centers in the country and is the site for some unique national exercises every year.  We provide crash and structural fire coverage as well as (non-transport) EMS and are active members of Division 136.   Volk is home for the WI Emergency Services Academy (WESA) and the entire management team gets involved in the coordination for the large events.  Volk is also home to the REACT Center and we enjoy a great working relationship with them.  We have 17 State Fire Fighters and one Military Fire Chief and are in the process of pursuing CPSE Accreditation.

The two departments work a different variation of a 56 hour week shift schedule.
