The Associated PressFirefighter recruitment ad touts 'Low Pay, Cool Helmet'
This April 20, 2019 photo provided by the Scott County, Mo., Rural Fire Protection District shows a novel approach the district is using to recruit new firefighters. The county is trying to recruit new firefighters with its sales pitch, saying in signs posted outside one of its stations that the job offers "Hard Labor, Odd Hours, Low Pay (and) Cool Helmets!!" KFVS-TV reports that the Scott County Rural Fire Protection District's chief, Jeremy Perrien, says most advertisements are "kind of boring." He says that's why they "wanted to add some humor to it" and "try to catch people's attention." Perrien says they're short about 15 firefighters.
