As Mr. DiMaio knows, EMT pay is listed as a separate line item in the budget but is part of the firefighters negotiated *base* pay - it is not a bonus. This is due to the fact that EMT certifications must be renewed by every firefighter, every year. Having a separate line item for EMT pay allows the department to track and ensure that all SDFD are certifed EMTs 24/7 and/or withhold EMT pay until certifications are current.
