    You should apply to Sallyport, Dyncorp and ITT. If you could get ARFF that would really help your chances, most contracts require it now. Private message me if you need any further details....Good Luck!

    ARFF and Driver/ Operator are my problem with getting. No one really offers it in the Philly area. Also my volunteer department wont send me to ARFF because we dont do it. I need companies that will take me with out those 2 certs.

    Montco offers Driver/Operator. I believe we are in the Philly area.

    I know people who wanted to go over bad enough and got their ARFF cert in SC, with their own money. It all depends on how bad you want to make the big bucks.......

    Default Sc arff

    South Carolina isn't that bad. Price wise it is cheaper then Texas A&M (www.teex.org) or Salt Lake (angelfire.com/ut/arff) and they give you housing and breakfast and lunch for the days that you stay at the fire academy. Stuff in Saudi Arabia will hire you without ARFF but for the most part you are completing against people that have ARFF but may/may not have the experience.

    www.DODFire.com has some links in the job section.
