Annual salary starts at $30,334. The current top pay for this position, which is achieved after eight years, is $37,690. This position also includes an excellent benefits package. The City of Maumelle is an equal opportunity employer.

Volunteer Positions
With a minimum staffing of only five career firefighters on duty at a time, our volunteer firefighters are an integral part of our organization. We are currently interested in expanding our roster of volunteer firefighters, which are actually paid a small stipend for responding to calls and attending
twice-monthly training meetings.

Volunteer firefighters are summoned via radio pagers for calls that have the potential to exceed the capabilities of the on-duty staff. In 2014, the department handled more than 1,500 requests for service ranging from building fires to lifting assistance calls. Of those, volunteer firefighters were paged to respond an average of three times a week.

Applicants should be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or equivalent and have no felony convictions. Previous firefighting experience is not required.
