    Took me about 4 years. But, I look at those 4 years as a great time to better myself as I went. If you're determined and you know you'll be a good fireman - it will happen. Just don't give up.

    Talk about luck...A friend asked me to go take the test with him just becuase he didn't want to go by himself.

    He was a close friend, volley for years....all the classes.

    I'd never seen a fire, was installing Fire Alarms & Camera Systems in banks..making bookoo bucks..had a nice house in a different city.....took the test with him and 198 other guys..finished 5th lol

    Best thing I ever did.. He's still ****ed lol

    So luck certainly has alot to do with it but our testing is pretty tough too.
    Only 40 out of 198 made it past the Written exam and only 6 were hired off the list I was on.
    I was hired 1 month before the 3 yr list expired. lol
