    Thats a good score. You can improve that with the PAT. Do what I said and practice those events and youll be fine. Also, Ill shoot you an email the next day im on shift. see ya man.

    Looks like all you want to do is post, post and post and get your posting number up!

    Why don't you PM these folks. I don't think FH likes all these uneccessery BS posts. This isn't a chat room you know.

    Maybe the dept will notify you if you are going to the next step. Why go to work for a small dept with low pay anyway?

    I am not perfect as you aren't. I was merely making a suggestion as not to keep on and on and very few are answering you.
    I have old turnouts hanging in the garage, which probably are older than you.


    My education includes the following:

    Bachelors in Public Administration, Bachelors in Emergency Management, Associates in Fire Science, Certified Chief Officer, Certified Emergency Manager, etc, etc, etc.

    By the way, why don't you apply for a job in a large metro department up here on the east coast and not in a small burg? More money to begin, better benefits, better working conditions, more fire activity and a great retirement package.

    jonee...what department are you on? because Knoxville is still a decent size city. It doesn't have to be FDNY or boston or Chicago or LA to be a good Fire department. What is your opinion/view on Charlotte?

    I am looking at a corporate job in Knoxville from out of the State of Tennessee. I work part time for a fire department currently, and would love to stay involved if I move to Knoxville. Can anyone refer a few volunteer or part-time departments in the Knoxville area (preferably west side since I will be working in Oak Ridge)? If you can help out, just PM me so I don't hijack this thread. Thank you.

    On the main FH page about mid way down center you should see
