Is there someone in the USA [Florida area if possible]who could give me information on joining the fire department?I am currently a serving firefighter of 14 years service in Greater Manchester England. Myself,wife and two sons would like to emigrate to the USA but i know the recruitment process is much different to the UK.My qualifications can be proven if necessary,but i need to find out about
1; upper age limits,as i,m 39years of age
2;maximum number of years i could work
3;am i eligible to even take the written/physical tests
4;are there any fire houses i can speak to direct

I would appreciate any advice from anyone anywhere in the USA (our options are open,as florida is merely a preference)to help us.

Yours very gratefully Robby Scott.
