NEW YORK - Feb. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- AdvisorSmith, a leading information resource for small business owners, released a study today ranking 311 cities in the United States based on their attractiveness for firefighters.

The study ranked cities based on the following factors:
• The location quotient, which measures the concentration of jobs on a per capita basis
• The cost of living in each city
• Average salaries for firefighters in each of the cities

Key Findings

• The #1 city for firefighters is Amarillo, Texas, which offers an average salary of $61,450, exceeding the national average by 15%. The city also has a 85% higher concentration of jobs for firefighters compared with the average American city and a cost of living 16% below the average.
