    Question Contract firefighting

    I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on contract firefighting. I only have my FF1, FF2 and four years of volunteering time as a firefighter. I was wondering what the chances of getting picked up were.

    If you want to go to Iraq and work for Wackenhut than the chances are pretty good. They have alot of openings right now. Kuwait, Saudi and Qatar are different stories. Just go to careerbuilder.com and search for firefighter andyou'll see. When I was in the USAF as Fire Protection we worked with the Contract guys and as far as the plug and pipe guys were concerned they only had FF1 and some had FF2 and they mostly came from volunteer departments. Good Luck!
