PFD Dispatch



        The Parma Fire Department welcomes you to our new web page.  Using up to date technology we are going to radically change how information is sent to the public.  Please visit often, as we will be posting updates on a daily basis.  Our updates will consist of newsworthy emergencies, daily training exercises, current projects, upcoming events, and much more.





The PFD Interview Board was busy this week interviewing candidates to fill six vacant positions on the department.  The six individuals chosen will be required to pass post offer polygraph tests, medical examinations and psychological exams prior to being appointed sometime in September.  New members spend their first 12 weeks working five eight hour days a week in Parma Fire’s Cadet Training Program before being assigned to a shift.  The cadets become “counters” when they are assigned to a shift but their cadet training continues for the remainder of their two year probationary period.
