    Default Hello from Australia

    Hi David

    I am also a new member and just working out you shortened titles, I know what VFD is, what is a PVFF. I am going to the States in November and was thinking of going to a NASCAR race but I don't know if the season is still on. Any info appreciated.

    Thanks Ben

    Cool

    Ben and Stan,
    Hi guys, thanks for replying. Let me answer the questions one by one. A PVFF is a Probationary Volunteer Fire Fighter. Until we finish the Firefighter I course we are counted on the counties roster of active personnel as a PVFF. This means no interior work and you are basically the Pump Operators gofer. Yes the NASCAR season is a live and well. I'm doing to Dover Delaware for the race in June. Yes. I live on Ft. Meade for right now, but I volunteer with Maryland City (although I might transfer to either Earleigh Heights or Odenton depending on which house I buy). I always believe in giving something back to whatever community I am stationed in. Since the post has no volunteer positions in either Fire or EMS, I did the next best thing. Hope this answers y'alls wuestions. Oh BTW, I am orignally from Flroida by way of Pennsylvania. Take care and stay safe!
