    Default Orlando Area Volunteer Fire Company?

    I'm looking at moving up the Greater Orlando area for work. Are there any busy volunteer companies in the area?

    As in you carry a pager for and go to the firehouse?
    None that I can think of.
    OCFRD has a Reserve FF program.

    Do you have your FFII? EMT?
    OCFRD is pretty squared away when it comes to their reserves, and they act/treated like staff guys (from what I was told by one of them when I was in Medic school, things could have changed).

    A lot of places give good remarks to those who are vollies for them, Hillsborough asks you if you volunteer for them when you test, I met an OCFRD and BCFR Reservist who was hired because he networked and met people at the depts he Reserved at.

    If I had the time/money to Reserve, I would, but my free time is eaten up by overtime up here.
