Reserve firefighter programs
Would anyone agree that a reserve firefighter position could lead to a permanent firefighter spot with the fire department you are a reserve for? Almost like an "In" to the department?
Anyone earn a spot as a permanent from starting out as a reserve in that department?

honestly, these questions you should know the answer to. i know of some departments that only hire from their reserves. its not a guarantee, you most likely are still going to have to pass a written and oral, but it's an advantage, they already know who you are. i know alot of guys in CA and AZ who started out as reserves then got picked up, but i also know some guys who are reserves who will never get picked. dont blacklist yourself as a reserve b/c you never get a career spot.
