As indicated at the public safety budget work session, after Medics and the Firefighters Association raised the question of medic pay competitiveness, the City Manager directed the City’s Human Resources Department to prepare an analysis of EMS classification and compensation to determine how their pay compares to comparator jurisdictions. The attached analysis compares compensation based on the new career ladder and the establishment of the 10% pay increase differential when Medics transitioned to the dual role system (both already included in the FY 2017 proposed budget). Based on these parameters, the proposed medic salaries for FY 2017, which are reviewed in the attached analysis, remain in the competitive range of our comparator jurisdictions.
