Cosumnes CSD Fire Department Welcomes Ten Recruits

Cosumnes CSD Fire Department Welcomes Ten Recruits

After extensive testing and background checks, the Cosumnes CSD Fire Department extended offers of employment to 10 Fire Recruits who will begin training on April 15, 2013.  This recruitment will assist in managing current and projected vacancies due to attrition, lower the expenses in the Fire Department’s overtime budget and will provide some much needed relief in their goal to address the overall structural deficit at Cosumnes Community Services District.

The 16-week comprehensive academy will be lead by the Cosumnes Fire Department’s Training Division and is designed to minimize costs.  The Fire Recruits are expected to graduate on August 3, 2013.

San Joaquin Partnership Annual Meeting: Good News! Good Jobs! Good Future! for San Joaquin USA

More than 150 government, community and business leaders attended the San Joaquin Partnership and Business Council 22nd Annual Meeting this morning in Stockton.

They were lured by the invite: "San Joaquin County takes leadership in Job Growth" with the sub head of "What does it take to 'land' an Amazon deal?"

And they were not disappointed.

Fritz Grupe, Chairman of the Business Council, celebrating its 25th anniversary, began the presentation with "Businesses go where they are wanted," and went on to explain the dire San Joaquin County business climate 25 years ago: no infrastructure, high crime, no shovel ready sites and an undereducated workforce.
