Part Time Engineer

As times have progressed it has been harder for local businesses to allow their volunteer firefighting employees to leave during business hours for fire calls.  The City of Claremont realized the need for a Part Time Engineer due to this lower response from its member during the day.  Starting on July 1, 2002, the Claremont Fire Department and the City of Claremont had its first Part Time Engineer during the day.  The hours of the Part Time Engineer are from 7am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.  Currently there are five members of the Claremont Fire Department that share this Part Time Engineer position.
