I am taking my first over to Florida next week for a little holiday and to check out the real Estate.
I have made some great friends in Departments across the US from MA down to SC and across to AZ.
I have yet ot meet any Firefighters from Florida but would like to hook up for a vist and maybe a T-Shirt trade while I am in the area. Obvioulsy like most Brits coming over I will be in the Orlando Kissimmee area. I will be in from 26th May until 10th June.
If any of you are Stationed in this area and wouldn't mind a visit,or know of any Firehouse that welcomes visitors, please reply or mail me. In case of security worries with visitors, I am an Asst Divisional Officer (Batt Chief) with London Fire Brigade and a contributing author to firehouse.com, feel free to check out my credentials in the memberzone.
Thanks for your time.
