Frisco is growing at an astronomical rate. I'm curious: how many police officers and firefighters are currently employed with the city? How many female officers and female firefighters do you employ? Thank you.

Thank you for your interest in the Frisco Fire Department. We currently employ 60 personnel in our Operations Division. Of those 60, 41 are certified Firefighter/Paramedics and the remaining 19 are certified Firefighter/EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), most of whom are enrolled in Paramedic school or are planning to enroll in the near future. Our Administrative staff, including the Fire Chief, Asst. Fire Chief/Fire Marshal, and support personnel, consists of eight personnel, six of which are certified at the Firefighter and/or Paramedic levels.
Our career Operations personnel are currently supported by 53 volunteer firefighters, 21 of which are certified as EMTs. Our number of volunteer personnel fluctuates slightly over time, but we typically have approximately 40 to 50 volunteers at any given time.
The Frisco Fire Department currently employs no women in its Operations Division. We have one female volunteer certified as a Firefighter/Paramedic who has been with the Department for several months. We would welcome additional female members, either paid or volunteer to our organization. For anyone not currently certified as a firefighter our volunteer program offers many benefits.
We are currently in the process of filling four career positions in Operations through a series of written and physical testing and oral interviews. Filling those positions would bring the number of career Operations personnel to 64 and complete our authorized staffing level for the current fiscal year. We anticipate adding additional career personnel to the Operations Division in the coming year following approval of the City's new budget.
