    Default Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan ATCO Fire

    Looking for information on the living & working conditions with ATCO at the Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.

    Specifically info on the structural, rotorcraft, and fixed wing fire assignments/fire stations, daily routine/duties, training opportunities, etc.

    Thanks

    I was offered this job, looks like they're living in CHU's (containerized housing unit). The job is at mustang ramp, I deployed and worked out at mustang in 2009-10 when it was in its infancy, in that year it grew tenfold, I can only imagine how big it is now.. Not sure if I'm going to take the job or not though, I qualify as a crew chief, but was offered just firefighter... Not driver\operator, or EMT like I have. I'm going to see if I can renegotiate so someone with less certs can get the slot
