Heavy Shop Technician vs Fire Apparatus Technician Pay Scale

 

Heavy Shop Technician vs Fire Apparatus Technician Pay Scale

I wanted to check and see if your shops had 2 different pay scales for Heavy Shop Technicians vs EVT certified technicians.  We have technicians that work only on Fire Trucks and ones that work on all other Heavy shop equipment.  Thanks, Keith.

All of our techs are paid the same rate with the exception of ASE and EVT certificatioin incentives. We pay an incentive for staying current as an ASE Master Auto or Master Heavy truck. We also pay an incentive for anyone that is Master EVT certified on Fire Apparatus and Ambulances. Must have both masters to qualify for the EVT incentive.

Our heavy equipment mechanics do the work on fire apparatus at the same pay scale as other heavy vehicles and equipment.  There currently is no premium pay for this work.

We currently have only Equipment Mechanic II personnel on staff and they perform work on all City vehicles and equipment regardless of assignment. We currently pay a monthly bonus to the technicians for having an ASE Master Certificate in automotive, medium and heavy truck and also a California State Fire Mechanic Certification  I, II and III. We don't currently recognize the EVT Certification as it seems California is primarily concerned with the California State Fire Mechanic Certification.
