    Post Hey guys, new here

    Hey all, I'm a volunteer firefighter in Newington CT and a full-time student at the University of New Haven. I am enrolled in their Fire Science/Arson Investigation program and will be graduating in 2003. I'm looking to pursue a career as a firefighter-EMT in a city such as Hartford, Boston, or New York. After my 20 years, I may get into fire investigation as a fire marshal for the CT State Police or in the private sector.

    Thumbs up

    Wow, sounds like you have your future planned. I would like to do fire investigation sometime, but I want to go into structural firefighting first. Anyway, welcome to the team, you can't help learning something from someone. Have a great time.

    NFD Mouse,
    Sounds like a good plan. They've got a great program at UNH. I'm on the job in Waterbury. Our former fire chief runs the show down there. Good Luck

    Hi Mouse,

    I am currently a student at the community college in my hometown. It is one of the best community colleges in the state of New Mexico and the U.S.A. but it does not have any Arson Investigation studies. I am finishing my last semester at the community college and transfer to the University of New Mexico in the fall of 2001.
    I am also going into the field of arson investigation, hopefully with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). It is really neat to find that another person knows about the job. I am hoping to do some firefighting after graduation for the experiences. I've always been interested in firefighting and fire sciences. I grew up around it.
    I get a lot of blank looks from people my age when I tell them which career I have picked. It is a very unique profession.
    Good luck with your studies!
