Job Openings – FF/Paramedic & Paramedic – Emporia Fire Department


The Emporia Fire Department has been authorized to hire 6 additional personnel increasing our shift staffing from 42 to 48. The emphasis on this hiring process is on the provision of Emergency Medical Services. We are actively seeking applications from individuals certified as Paramedic by the KBEMS. Non-firefighting positions may be available for those individuals who are interested in EMS only.
While we always prefer that employees live within Lyon County, our residency policy requires that employees live within adjacent counties with potential exceptions. Certain technical positions, such as Paramedic, have a more relaxed residency requirement and accommodation may be made for those outside adjacent counties. We work the Berkley shift schedule (24 on, 24 off, 24 on, 24 off, 24 on, 4 days off). There is no mandatory call back although a substantial amount of call back time is available.
The job postings for FF/Paramedic and Paramedic are available at Online applications are available at the end of the job descriptions. If you have any questions, please contact the City of Emporia Fire Department (620-343-4230) or the City of Emporia Human Resources (620-343-4290) for additional information.
