    Default former flatland firefighter

    Just thought I would say hi to all of those in the land of Lincoln. I was a volunteer for 9 years and managed to get a job in the show me state.(the money is so much better over here) I just wanted to tell all the people that are volunteers now that want to become a paid firefighter to keep plugging away at it, your time will come. And to those volunteers that want to stay volunteer....thank you

    Welcome to the IL section parazeus. Feel free to lurk around here any time. You will be entertained, if nothing else.

    Watch out for ChiefReason. Most of what he posts should be taken with a grain of salt....

    More like a salt BLOCK.
    It's nice to see tourism coming back to Illinois. I make it to Missouri once in a while.
    Don't be a stranger. Stop in any time. Be glad to put you up for the night.
    And for the record, Jaybird is the president of the Illinois contingent of the crusty old jakes.

    Not to be outdone by the northern delegation, welcome back to Illinois. We down in the south are happy to welcome former Illinoisians to our forums.
    Any depts. in MO hiring - got a son who is looking for a job.
    And, yes, take what CR and Jay both say with a dumptruck load of salt.

    That's what we need - somebody from Wisconsin rooting for Missouri, on the Illinois forums. It's happening again.

    Default Welcome

    Parazues, nice to have you aboard. I have to ask. Where in MO are they paying better that IL? I may be interested.

    those interested in jobs in Mo., drop me a line and I will try to get all the info I can for you and maybe even put in a good word for you at the Union meetings. Just remember that in Mo., its best to get your start at a Muni. dept. and then go to one of the districts.
