Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Firemans, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Someone who has worked for fewer than five years earns around $39K on average. Individuals with five to 10 years of experience don't get much more, though; the average income in this group is $41K. Firemans with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $57K. Survey participants who have worked for more than two decades report bringing in $62K on average.
