    Default COD student

    Does anyone know of any stations that let college students sleep in the station free of rent? Similar to Hyattsville. I have been told that Addison may and Roselle may. Any body know of others?

    Williamson County has a college firefighter program. It works great if you are going to SIU-C or John A Logan. You can get more info if you wish at

    Ox-
    The PGCO fire departments that provide for college students have actual dorm-style arrangements (you actually live there- as opposed to feeling like you live there). I don't know of any around here that are providing that kind of environment.

    As far as internships or sleep-ins go, I know Glenside FPD (Glendale Heights) allows their POCs to sleep-in. They have a really good group of guys. Also, Sycamore FD is offering a similar program; in fact, there is tuition assistance through SFD for students going to NIU or Kish College.

    Addison doesn't have any part timers or Vol. We do have medic students that come through, and they can do their time in 24 hour shifts.
    Glen Ellyn is the last true volunteer department in the area, I don't know what their rules are.

    I don't know of any around northern IL, but I do know of a few near Univeristy of Wisconsin in Madison (but they are not Madison F.D.).

    Doesn't help you much in Illinois though, does it? Sorry.

    Ox-

    CALL SYCAMORE. Have ya done that yet!?!?!??

    They call it an "Intern Program." I don;t think they even require you to be studying Fire Science. In fact, I think there's even a tuition assistance program....

    I understand you're already at another college, but Rock Valley College (Rockford) was offering an internship program as well with local departments. If you don't find what you need at COD, it may be worth a look.

    I do believe it is NOT live-in though.

    Chief Bill Riddle would most likely be the man. He only just got an A/C about six months ago, so I don't know if he's delegatd the intern program yet or not....
