    Default Transition from Air Force FD to City FD


    My name is Justin and I am an active duty fire fighter with the AF. I will be separating in March 2015 and want to join a city. If there is anyone that has made the jump from AF to City Dept I would love to pick your brain and get some insight on the process. I have all my ones completed and finishing up my twos. Will I be over qualified for a fire fighter position? I have also sent in my IFSAC certs to NC to be reciprocated. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like you are on your way

    No you will be under qualified !! Most cities do not fly planes, and most cities do a lot of medical runs with fires every so often .

    Appears you have already looked into what nc requires

    Make sure you check various city web sites for minimum requirements to apply.

    See if they will let you put in a job interest card.

    Best advice is test everywhere and often , do not settle on one or two depts, it is a long process to get hired

    Ohhhh and most cities work. 56 hour weeks
