    Ithaca NY runs a bunker program and runs a few thousand calls a year. I'm currently in Montour Falls FD bunker program and we run around 700 a year. Geneva NY has a program and runs around 800 fire a year.

    Hello,

    Eastern Kentucky University, offers a Co-Op program for its students. You have to finihs your Freshman year before you can apply. They use to have a live in program and I believe they are tring ot bring it back. They have a decent run volume and they pay you for each hour on the scene. You have to sign up for the Co-Op credit and pay for it inorder to be part of the program. Maybe if another EKU guy that did a Co-Op with Richmond is around they can give you more info. I do know that I spoke ot the Chief right before I finished school about doing a one term job. He was looking ofr huys and girls that will have to give them a min amount of time for the job.
    Thanks

    The area surrounding the university of maryland has the same call volume a most major city fire companies. For example one of the stations a mile from the campus ran over 6000 calls for 2004. Granted a little over half were EMS but a lot of those were traumas and they do see their share of fire. Check them out at www.34box.com
