    Default Organizations

    Can I get a quick definition of what Trade, Federal, State, and Local Organizations are?

    What have Google and Bing provided you for definitions so far?
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Trade - arranges for firefighter exchanges. Say you want to spend a year working in Ireland? They'll handle the legwork for a TRADE of your FF position, and backfill with a FF from Ireland, or even arrange a 3-way TRADE with you going to Ireland, an Irish FF going to Australia, and te Aussie taking your position.

    Federal - A bit antiquated. The term comes from the Federal Period (AKA Colonial times) when Ben Franklin was Chief. Covers those organizations such as Ben's own Union Fire Company, the forerunners of today's volunteer fire companies.

    State - They're only used in a few places like Delaware and Rhode Island, places that are only big enough for one FD in the whole state.

    Local - Unions. That's why they have Local ###in all their names.
    Opinions expressed are mine alone, and do not necessarily reflect those of the Philadelphia Fire Department and/or IAFF Local 22.
