The Town of Provincetown swore in six new, full-time members of the Provincetown Fire Department during a ceremony at Town Hall on August 31, 2023. These are in addition to the eight full-time personnel that began on July 1, 2023, bringing the Town to 14 full-time Fire/EMS staff as of September 1, 2023.
With Lower Cape Ambulance Association (LCAA) ceasing operations, the Town quickly developed a plan to hire a total of 20 full-time Fire/EMS staff to maintain and expand the level of service and coverage Provincetown needs to protect the life and property of its residents and visitors.
With 14 full-time personnel now on board, the Town plans to hire an additional two staff members this calendar year and then bring on another four staff members after January 1, 2024. This will bring the department to a full-time staff of 20 Fire/EMS employees to be prepared for next year’s busy season.
The Town’s volunteer, on-call firefighters will remain as valued members and leaders in the department. These new full-time positions allow for the Town to continue its transition toward bringing fire and rescue duties under one roof to ensure the continued public health and safety of all who live, work, or visit Provincetown.
Qualified EMT and Paramedic applicants are encouraged to view the current job openings on the Town’s website and apply at www.provincetown-ma.gov/6/Employment.
