Tamika Davis started this petition to City of Philadelphia and

Fire Service EMT’s that have signed this petition concerning the civil service regulation change regarding: gaining 3 pts on the fire exam this September 14, 2019 as well as a memo of understanding for Fire Service EMT’s being able to attain step 6 pay rate after 5 years of service once crossing over to Fire Service Paramedic.

Currently as it is understood there are several different groups of people that receive points when taking the fire exam however fire service EMT’s do not. It was awarded to us under the prior administration and taken away by the same authority. Now that we have a new Commissioner we would like to have this afforded back to us as we show up to the job 24x7x365, not these other entities.

 


We are not asking for a hand out; we want our current certification and employment to have as much value as it does every day when we show up to work. It should be that way for all of our members. Honestly, we feel like all of our members should be receiving internal hiring preferences over external hiring.

 


Also as it stands per the current contract all members are given step 6 pay rate after 5 years service if a member chooses to change his or her position EXCEPT for when changing to FSE TO FSP. We have several Fire service EMT’s who want fair and equal rights crossing over into the Fire service Paramedic position after 5 years of service as the rest of our members do.

 


In speaking with a vas majority of FSE’s, we all agree that we are being treated unfairly and that are time and dedication to the Philadelphia Fire Department is being taken for granted.
