Firefighter sales pitch: “Low Pay, Cool Helmets!!’
KFVS-TV reports that the Scott County Rural Fire Protection District’s chief, Jeremy Perrien, says most advertisements are “kind of boring.” He says that’s why they “wanted to add some humor to it” and “try to catch people’s attention.” The fire district posted a picture of the help wanted message on its Facebook page this week.
Perrien said they’re short about 15 firefighters, but they rarely have a full staff. The ad comes amid a shortage of volunteer firefighters in the Heartland.
