Some of the paid departments here in the area also have volunteers. My question is: In Florida, are vollies allowed inside a structure to fight a fire if they do not posses FF I & II?

Some departments will allow you to enter the structure if you are with a certified fire fighter, but only if you have taken or are in a class. You can check with the Florida State Fire College in Ocala and they will be more than happy to answer any questions.

That is very true. You must attend FFI to fight a structure fire in an interior attack. If you do not have FFI as a minimum, you will be stuck with rehab or hose pulling duties. In less strict standards, you might sneak in without FFI but it is NOT allowed starting next year in Florida. Just giving more information.

2)combat level...FF1, then you can go inside...
