Does the Fire Department have volunteer/paid-on-call firefighter positions?

No.  Due to the quantity of professional certifications required for our personnel being cross-trained as both a firefighter and a paramedic, as well as the number of specialty training/certification requirements (ex. hazardous materials, technical rescue, airport firefighter, etc.), all emergency response personnel are full-time employees. Individuals who are interested in becoming a full-time firefighter/paramedic with the Wheeling Fire Department should review the information contained on the Fire Department's main web page.
