Wildwood - So, the average firefighter salary is established at $45,829, according to a Wildwood spouter who researched the topic. Giving Wildwood firefighters an EMT stipend of another $45,000 puts them at $90,000. Factor in a few specialty qualifications, and they can easily achieve six figures. I say privatize EMS services. It will cut the financial liability of taxpayers, putting the service out to bid will draw revenue into the already financially strapped city coffers, and reduce pensions payouts which are based on yearly earnings prior to retirement. It makes good sense to save where we can.
