The Two Rivers Fire Department staffs a complement of 12 Paid on Call (POC) fire fighters. POC personnel have full time civilian jobs in our community. They are issued protective fire fighting turnout gear and keep this in their personal vehicles ready to make a response. POCs are dispatched by pager and respond directly to the fire or emergency scene from their home or place of employment. POCs train with full time personnel once each month. These training sessions are scheduled on two separate days; one in the evening and one in the afternoon to accommodate the various hours our POC personnel work.
POCs are required to be certified as Entry Level Fighters, according to State of Wisconsin criteria. This training is given to new recruits upon employment.
The Paid on Call program originated in 1985. These part-time fire fighters are a valuable resource of the Two Rivers Fire Department. Their response is critical in assuring safety and number of personnel required on the fire scene.
Technical College students enrolled in fire fighting and paramedic classes are able to participate in activities related to their studies. The intern program is similar to the shadow program with the exception being their involvement in emergency responses. Interns are able to perform the same medical procedures and fire fighting practices that the city fire fighter/paramedics do. The technical college programs require students to have actual "hands on experience" as a fire fighter or paramedic. They put in a prescribed number of hours at the fire department as part of their school cirriculum.
Our intern program has had a very positive effect on many students who have participated here. Plus it helps them prepare for their chosen profession.
