Driver/Operator (DO)

Currently, Driver/Operator (D/O) is an assignment in its own classification and rate of pay.  D/Os pass a written assessment and skills test which includes driving a course and operating the pumps.  Under our current system, a D/O is NOT required to become a Lieutenant. In the current system, a firefighter can promote directly to Lieutenant.  

There are two options for Driver/Operator under Civil Service: 1.) a firefighter would be required to promote to D/O before he or she could promote to Lieutenant (minimum of 2 years in each position).  This would occur via written test only - No driving or skills test required.  2.) The D/O becomes an assignment, and the D/O only receives assignment pay when driving the firetruck -- and not when on leave or in training.
