Civilian Military FF Career
I have begun to ponder a career as a Civilian FF on a military base after reading more about the job on this forum and based on my current appointment with the BLM as a wildland firefighter.
I was hoping to find out if there are more web sites available or if someone could steer me in the right direction. I am also curious as to the day-to-day life at one of these stations because I also have previous experience at a small Paid/Combination Call fire department and am not sure if its a "military" or "city" culture.
I believe I would be a good hire due to my 5+ years with a structural dept (FF II) and my current Federal experience (Engine Boss qualified) of 4 years. Should I get my EMT before applying? Does it matter (other than Vet points on usajobs) that I don't have military experience? Im pretty uninformed on civilian military fire jobs!
If you prefer to Private Message me that's understandable (i would do the same if someone wanted me to explain what we do during "down time" at my current job! ;))
