A potential agreement with Washougal firefighters will result in shifts starting 30 minutes earlier and pay increases when members are involved in advanced life support.
Currently, Washougal firefighters work 24-hour shifts, starting at 7:30 a.m. Camas firefighters start at 7 a.m.
The memorandum of understanding between Washougal and International Association of Firefighters Local 2444 provides for a 1.5 percent pay increase for Washougal captains and firefighters when they are on assignment as advanced life support team members and supervisors.
The memorandum allows for Washougal firefighters to be assigned to Camas stations and to staff an ambulance. It also provides for the possibility that a Washougal firefighter could serve as a Camas battalion chief.
The memorandum will be up for a Washougal City Council vote during its next meeting Tuesday, July 5, at 6 p.m., in the council chambers at City Hall, 1701 “C” St.
