I'd go somewhere where it's warm all year, and where I could work on a fireboat.

Philadelphia Fire Dept......and if I could get into any company- L16, L18 or L6, all in that order.
Next....FDNY E88 or L38, E46 or L27, E37 or L40......Or almost any busy engine or truck in Bklyn or Qns.
Lastly.....Philadelphia Police Dept, Aviation Unit or the Marine Unit.

I am at my dream department. I know it sounds corny, but here it is. I spent 4 years, 30 tests, and covered 9 states to finally get a Full-Time position. I was on 3 lists and took the first position that came my way. First came SJFD. After 8 months there I left for MFD, where I am today, and plan to stay. It worked out that I got offers from all three. So you see, when you spend as much money and time as I have chasing this job you are more likely to appreciate anywhere that offers you a position. It's all in how you look at it.

That's easy....just put me a shack and a pumper on one of the Florida Keys.

Any firehouse with a bakery next to it.
Oh and a schedule of 5 years on 15 years off and then retirement.

I want to work where nobody got hurt, goes home safe to their families, labor and management could sit down and talk, more people were "into" their jobs and where the Dept got just a fraction of the $$$$ the cops get.

I'm working in my dream department. If I had to change, I would go to Virgina Beach, I might even be making a move to Myrtle beach.
But I would rather change all of the problems and negativity in my department and stay there. For me, a perfect position in my department would be to be permanantly assigned to the tiller box of the busiest tractor drawn aerial in my department!

My dream dept. is one that isn't ran by the local politics, and has a chief that understands what a fire department's role is and that will stand up for what he thinks is right.
