The upcoming test for YFD is in June. Filing has already closed for that exam. Residency is basically mandatory to get hired. Starting pay is approx now $60,000 a year, great benefits, and you will see a decent amount of work/fire. Most firefighters on the department seem content to me.

Just be advised, its enourmously expensive to live in the Yonkers NYC/Westchester county area. You also need to be a resident 6 months before applying for the exam, and the next exam won't be given until 2-4 years from now.
Even when you are established on the list, it's very competitive to get in.
I'd recommend pursuing your local/states deparments over a move to Yonkers to try and get on YFD, it's scuh a longshot to do that.
