Abstract:

The problem is the Kalispell Fire Department has a turnover of firefighter paramedics to larger departments resulting in reduced staffing and increased overtime costs. The purpose of the research is to identify why firefighter paramedics are leaving this department and identify ways to improve firefighter paramedic retention. The Descriptive Research Method was used to answer the following four research questions: 1. What causes a firefighter paramedic to leave a small career department providing EMS transport? 2. What causes a firefighter paramedic to stay? 3. What efforts have been done in other fire departments similar in operation and size to Kalispell Fire Department to prevent employees from leaving? 4.

How can the Kalispell Fire Department prevent losing firefighter paramedics in the future? My recommendations will include retention training for supervisors, career and personal development of individual employees, changes in current policies and encouragement of more work-life balance.
