Here you go – a couple years worth of pay data for SFGov’s Incident Support Specialists:
(All of these ISS people are at the SFFD AFAIK.)
So, what does an ISS do?
Here’s my guess – drive SUVs about Frisco.
Now let’s do a search for ISS:
“A fire chief’s vehicle, also called a “chief unit” or a “fire chief’s car”, “Fly Car”, “Fly Vehicle”, a “fire car”, or sometimes even called a “Buggy” (a throw back to horse drawn days), is a car, truck, or SUV that is used by a fire chief at fire scenes.”
“Each fire chief’s vehicle can be driven/operated by an assistant to the Fire Chief, Deputy Chief, Division Chief or Battalion Chief known as a Chief’s Driver, Chief’s Aide, Chief’s Operator, or Incident Support Specialist.”
So, if you spend 60-something hours a week driving people about Frisco in a Ford Expedition or a Chevy Suburban, you can make about ten times as much laboring as an SFGov Incident Support Specialist than as a driver for the Lyft or the Uber.
Do I have that right?
