    Default Coolest fire department.

    I know coolest has a different meaning for each person. At-least in my mind coolest is the fire department who has the most variation. I've always loved the specialized teams of the fire service. I was looking at Miami-Dade fire rescue and was blown away by all the units. they have dive teams, tech rescue, forestry haz-mat, USAR, marine units, helos, TAC-medic, K-9, rescue swimmer. I was wondering if anyone had depts they thought were just really cool and would love to work for. Obviously I think Miami-Dade is sweet but I also think Cal-Fire is awesome too!

    That's quite a variation. We have USAR, K-9 (fire investigation and search and rescue dogs), haz-mat rapid response, marine unit (only one) and we used to have a helo but was scrapped as it was a bit of a disaster from what I've been told! I'd love to do the job of rescue swimmer but obviously no good if your dept doesn't cover coastline!

    Ya a rescue swimmer program would be really cool. That fire dept parallels the coast guard pretty much!
