Paid-On-Call firefighters are essentially volunteer firefighters who receive pay only for the time they spend training or responding to incidents. Paid-on-call firefighters do not require any previous training or experience.  All required training will be provided by the fire department. However, there is an expectation that members will attend training and incidents and that they will complete all training required to become certified by the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC).
