Promotions are a great way to get ahead in life. They can also be a way to earn more money, get more responsibility and make your job more rewarding.

Promotions are often based on how well you do at work and what you’ve done for the department as well as your current position within the department. In some cases, promotions might even be based on an employee’s performance over a period of time or by comparing their performance with that of other employees within their division or unit (e.g., lieutenant versus captain).


The Aberdeen Fire Department is one of the oldest fire departments in the country. It has been serving the community since 1876, making it one of America’s oldest fire services. The department has had many promotions over its history and continues to do so today with new ones being added each year due to the high demand for these jobs within the organization.
