The Westbrook Fire & Rescue Department is comprised of dual-role personnel.  As such, firefighter-EMS providers have the ability to rotate their emergency duties between ambulances and fire apparatus.  Due to their dual-role responsibilities, recruits are required to successfully graduate from a six to eight-week new hire drill school which will help maximize their dual-role capabilities, familiarize themselves to the agency and to the City of Westbrook.


New hire recruits are compensated during their drill school training, which will cover multiple topics related to fire, EMS, and specialty rescue operations.  Once new hire recruits successfully complete their drill school, they will then move to one of our four shifts.  New hire recruits will work an average of 7.5 shifts per month, working a 24 hour on/24 hour off/24 hour on/120 hours off rotation.
