    Welcome brother! Glad to have you in quarters. Just a quick hello from a
    Yankee firefighter from Massachusetts. Been involved in the fire service for twenty or so years. So who knows maybe there are some things this old firedawg can swap or help you with. Just post and we'll put our two cents worth in.

    Hi! Although I'm a paid firefighter, I've got a lot of respect for volunteers. I've been with the City of Miami (FL) F.D. since 1980. Have been riding ALS (rescue...I'm a paramedic, also) since 1983. I'm also part of the Haz-Mat team and have taken classes in Confined Space Rescue and Trench Rescue. Good luck in your career. Hope to hear from you.

    Hi form Arkansas. I have been a firefighter for 21 years now. I am the chief of a fully volunteer dept here in the Ozark Mountains. We average around 100 calls per year which are bpoth fire and EMS. My men and women are trained in cave rescue,high angle, confined space and swift water rescue.We have been able to drop our iso rating from an 8 to a 5 with a very limited budget but would still like to go even lower. Welcome to the forum and stay safe.
