    Default AF Officer Careers.....?

    All,

    I am completing AFROTC and was looking at the AFSC's offered. I did not see any Officer Firefighter programs, is this only offered to enlisted?

    Would I have to go through CE to find any jobs in this field?

    Thank you for your time, I look forward to your response.

    Correct. there is no officer positions in the fire house on active duty AF. All fire fighters in the Air Force report to a civil engineer comander and is under the CE squadron

    There are no set Officer positions in Fire and Emergency Services (3E7X1). The CE Commander or one of the few officers that work at AFCESA or in each MAJCOM will have just a little bit of involvement in Fire Protection. Other than that, you have to be Enlisted to be a Fire Dawg.

    The CE Commander is the base Fire Marshal. It's simply a title; we all know the Fire Chief is the person who runs the show! {wink, wink}

    As for officers eswhere, each MAJCOM will have a Civil Engineer (A7) that has some input over that MAJCOM's Fire Protection division. AFCESA has I believe one officer that works with the Enlisted program manager / AF Fire Chief.

    The day the Air Force allows officers to be fire fighters or have any involvement other than the CE Commander is the day I think many fire fighters will leave, officers have no place near a fire house unless they are visiting and even then more than 10 min is way to much. Dont get me wrong I know a bunch of good officers but I also know a bunch of officers I wouldnt trust watching my dog.

    i remember about a year and a half ago they were seriously considering having the cef flight fall under cex so there could be an officer in charge of the over all flight. A lot of the Orons in the world don't really like the fact that some silly enlisted guy has so much budget authority as the fire chief does.. and that he is essentially in charge of around 60-70% of most CE sq's.. needless to say that didn't make it all the way through the reforms.. and I'm happier for it.
