    3 years Volunteer FF/FAO followed by 7 years US Navy including 3 as part of a shipboard damage control team. Advanced to on-scene leader of Repair 5 (main engineering space) as well as Petty Officer 1st Class (E-6).

    Since then, I've become a computer programmer, but I still keep a scanner with me, and frequently shoot action pictures at fire scenes as a personal hobby and for local news media.

    Question

    Parisfireops,

    I'm a Reservist. 18 Yrs so far.
    Do you (or anyone else reading this) have any amount of PAID military leave in your contracts?
    My City currently pays the difference in the two pays, but I'm working on our contract to include full pay.
    If so, I'd be interested in a copy of your contract language.
    I'm trying to compile a list of FD's that support the Military Reserve Forces to help me in this quest.

    Thanks in advance,

    McGyver
