Firefighter 1 class question
Hello, i have a question for you guys. How long(on average) it takes a normal firefighter 4th class to get to 1st class firefighter, i mean how long would it take me from the date of hire to get promoted to 3rd,2nd and 1st class. Approximate times please.
The other question, do you guys think its worth to get hired by a Fire department 100 miles away, just to get hired, so i won't lose my chance of being a firefighter and then after some promotions or couple years to transfer closer to my residence within 20-30 miles.
And are there any policies about how long you have to stay at certain fire department before you can transfer to a different one.
Thanks a lot for your time.
