New to the forum
I have been viewing discussions on firehouse for a little over a year and finally decided to start posting in hopes of gaining some helpful information. I'm from the Sacramento CA area and have been hoping to work seasonaly with Cal Fire or the USFS in hopes of eventually transfering into fire prevention/investigation.
I have my A.S. in Fire Technology, and will be finishing my B.S. in Fire Prevention this year. I have been working part time as an Intern Firefighter EMT for about 5 years around my fulltime job. I have a number of entry level fire certs but have had a hard time getting picked up like a number of other people in the area. I would like to eventually get into the prevention/investigation field but understand its ussually a promotional oppurtunity.
