SCFPD Accepts SAFER Grant, Hiring Five Firefighter/Paramedics from FCTC Statewide Eligibility List

Riverbank, CA – The Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District Board of Directors, Oakdale City Council, and Oakdale Rural Fire Protection District Board of Directors have approved acceptance of a $477,123 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant from the Department of Homeland Security. The purpose of the grant is to improve local fire department staffing and deployment capabilities so they may more effectively and safely respond to emergencies. This grant will fund three firefighter positions for a period of two years, at the end of which, SCFPD may have the opportunity to apply for an additional two years of funding. At the end of the grant performance period, all three organizations plan to evaluate the possibility of retaining the positions, which they are hoping to do. The District is recruiting two more Firefighter/Paramedics to fill existing vacancies.

Since about 63% of the call volume in the area served by SCFPD are medical in nature, the District, whose current engine companies provide basic life support care for patients, is implementing a paramedic program to begin providing advanced life support care for our community. This will necessitate recruitment of Firefighter/Paramedics, a new position, which the District plans to do via the Firefighter Candidate Testing Center (FCTC) Statewide Eligibility List. If you or anyone you know meets the qualifications for the position of Firefighter/Paramedic with SCFPD, are interested in joining the SCFPD family and are not already active on the FCTC Eligibility List, please visit to register and get more information about upcoming testing. Interviews will be scheduled for late November and only candidates actively on the FCTC Statewide Eligibility List will be considered.
