COVID 19, or the Coronavirus

In accordance with Governor Abbott’s “Open Texas” executive order, the City of Baytown will be re-opening public facilities in a phased process. Following CDC guidelines, all City events, programming, and City venue rentals remain cancelled or postponed until further notice. City services will continue to run in a modified format through digital or other distance means. Beginning May 11th, we will begin providing curb side and appointment-only services at our public facilities while avoiding fully opening government facilities to the public. We will continue to keep you updated on our social media channels.

Job Description, Characteristics, and Opportunities

The primary responsibility of all uniform firefighters is to protect the lives and property of the people of the City of Baytown, by responding to their emergencies in a quick and efficient manner, and to provide top quality customer service. 

Effectively fulfilling the duties of a Baytown Firefighter requires the employment of a broad range of skills while under stress and sometimes in hazardous environments. The ability to appropriately respond to each situation is crucial, requiring keen observation, good communication, rational thinking and, if an incident demands it, the ability to physically remove another person from a life hazard.

While no written description can encompass the many skills necessary to resolve every challenge a firefighter paramedic may face, this list is useful in providing a starting point for understanding what firefighter paramedics may be expected to do.  

In addition to the Operations Division, the Baytown Fire Department has many challenging and diverse assignments that are available to firefighters. 

Firefighters have the opportunity to be assigned to the Regional Hazardous Materials Team, Regional USAR and Technical Rescue Team, Training Division, Emergency Management, and Fire Prevention and BEAT Alley Fire Education.
