Hello,
My fiancé and I are looking at moving to Daphne Alabama area or Fairhope area. I’m a paramedic with a couple years of 911 experience. I’d rather not go fire if I had a choice, however if it’s needed, then it’s needed. Anyone know good departments for that area that pay okay with a decent reputation? TIA

Did you just use the terms Alabama and good pay in the same sentence?

You may wish to redefine what "good pay" means, especially if headed to AL.

Baldwin EMS runs the ambos (they are a private service and do 911 and IFT). City of Daphne has no EMS or Fire jobs posted except for Deputy Fire Marshal with a whopping starting pay of $25/hour. And they are a combination department.

Fairhope is all volunteer FD, and Baldwin EMS is their provider. Fairhope does need a dispatcher though, can get you in for $18 an hour there!

Good luck...unsure where you are moving from, but anywhere "south" is never gonna be good wages. Cost of living is lower typically, so if the areas meet other life goals, then go for it.

Moving from Texas so the standards are low 😅 thank you for the information! Hours, equipment, and scope is a little more important than pay. Fiancé is a nurse so she makes an actual good living 😅😅😅😅
