Questions about Gen. KS Firefighting
Im currently a Junior in high school, as well as a cadet firefighter with my local volunteer dept. I love volunteer firefighting, and wouldnt give it up for the world, which is why Im considering moving to Kansas after I finish college. but before I jump into something I know nothing about, I figured this would be the best place for some answers. Ok, here we go.
1. What's the scoop with Wichita Fire Department? how hard is it to get in? what do they look for in recruits? how long is the hiring process? Anyone with any experience/knowledge with WFD would be a big help.
2. As mentioned prior, I dont want to give up running Volunteer. So, what are the light/siren laws for POVs in Kansas? anything special I should know? Also, are there any laws/restrictions on mobile based fire radios in POVs in KS? does anyone know of light dealers/installers in the Wichita Metro/Rose Hill area?
3. Not quite fire-related, but does anyone know how to get involved in SKYWARN in KS? And light laws for storm chasers?
kind of a lot of questions to ask, and Im sure there will be more to come in the future. any help, anything at all, is helpful and greatly appreciated. Im just a kid whos just starting to get his feet wet, and Im trying to think about my future. I dont want to be one of thos typical college kids who have no idea what their going to do after college.
