    Question What is your favorite department? POLL

    I am trying to compile an unbiased list of what department would you like to work for if you had your choice... I appreciate the input!
    I'll start out with my pick

    Detroit

    Throw in a second for the hell of it... If Detroit didn't hire me first I was actually hoping to work for Chicago but my # is 30##

    FDNY, they have a lot of history, a lot of tradition.
    very strong brotherhood.

    I would never work there though, i prefer the rurals.

    Default Not the Biggest, but the Best!

    #1: Cheyenne, Wyoming
    #2: Wilmington, Vermont
    #3: Cando, North Dakota

    These are all GREAT departments that are steeped in pride & tradition. All are homes of some of the bravest and hardest working firefighters in the world.

    1. FDNY
    2. DCFD

    I guess I'll throw my best in.....Long Beach California has the best family oriented organization around. The crews are the best there is when it comes to getting the job done...and we actually have fun doing it. The Department is alot different when I joined and more into training and drilling.....which is a very good thing.
