    Perry,

    Are you on hold because of the drama with the military contracts or because of your current cert status?

    no i was really originally scheduled to go in april but my physical took awhile they couldn't find my heart. once they located it i was ready for july 18 i'm ready to go i'm thinking of hitch hiking on over and just meandering into bagdad maybe they will put me to work
    really though it gives me time to finish a few projects at the house.

    Hey Medic03431,

    You will be employable to WSI. As far as flying under the radar, the radar isn't really operational right now. I don't know if they are currently taking new hires. They do have a running list, and anyone on that list who is IFASC/Proboard certified can and will eventually go. There is an order of priority though. Anyone delayed will go forst before new hires or those who were to go during that time period. i.e. the guys scheduled for July will go first when they start re-shipping and then the guys from August etc, etc...

    Put your paperwork in though. Start the process, get your physical and all that, that way you will be ready to go when thay start the re-hire.

    To all,

    If you ARE NOT IFSAC or ProBorad and you are wanting to go, waiting to go or just want to get ProBoard certified, send me an e-mail. I and another brother from Michigan are checking into getting a "crash challenge course" together. It maybe in Pennsylvania, as it seems that a particular college there has a history of having people "test out" and challenge the ProBoard exams. I am at : jlk0530@hotmail.com

    Default hazmat

    Does anyone know of anywhere doown south to take a hazmat class? I'm from mississippi. I have an interview next thursday with wsi. I know that there is a hold on hiring. The hazmat is the only thing that is going to screw me. I have tech 1&2, but these classes are not ifsac or pro-board. I'm willing to travel to get the class. I don't believe I could travel to pennsylvania though. Any info would help. Are there any classes that could be taken over the internet? Does any body anything about this trainingdivision.com ad in firehouse magizine? Just for info my other certs are Pro-board ff1, DOD ff2, DOD airport ff, DOD driver/operator arff & pumper. I have several class on hazmat from when I was in the Air Force. THey were taught through the national fire academy. Anyway any info will be greatly appreciated.

    If your Haz-Mat classes were taken through the Air Force, then they should be considered DoD certs, making them acceptable for WSI.

    Post HazMat Class

    Check 4 or 5 pages back. Someone had posted some info about a HazMat class down in Louisiana coming up sometime soon. Maybe this will help.

    Talking Training

    Look at www.dodfire.com goto upper right side click on training then click on the next screen on available training. All of them fill the DoD standard for training. I just put my application in and hope that since I am a former DoD federal firefighter and a retired Maryland Air National Guard firefighter that I stand a good chance. As far as access to the bases just have proper ID and auto insurance. Contact the base in concern and see if you can gain access to the class.

    well sounds like things are getting hectic again with the company...it probably was smart of them to put people on hold...referencing the gear issue...lots of guys still don't have gear so it was probably best that they hold off for a little bit to get things worked out...just as an fyi...some of you guys are having problems going but my fiancee is having problems coming home...he was supposed to fly out of baghdad like 2 days ago to come home on r&r...but guess what..he's still there and looks like they aren't flying today at all...i know its not a company problem..but still...problems exist...

    i'm not blaming anyone or trying to spread negativity...just sucks a lot...

    Hey everyone !!
    I hate that all you guys are having all this trouble with the certs. BAMA got all his stuff proboarded thru the Alabama Fire College. It is a standard process for them now. He had a few that was not thru the proboard and I sent them in and got them done. i guess we are one of the lucky ones that they recognized. Try contacting them and see if they hace a course if your near us.
    They are located in Tuscaloosa AL. It is a part of Shelton State Community College. Maybe this will be a help.
    Take care and be safe !!!!!

    Exclamation CRASH COURSE INFO

    To anyone needing Pro Board or IFSAC certification in FF I/II and HazMat Awareness/Ops. contact me immediately. I have a cantact who can "meet our requests" tomorrow. YES, I SAID TOMORROW. I know that this is short notice. We knew it would be, just not this short. If you can get to Philadelphia airport by 8am tomorrow morning, you can make it on time. If you are local her in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, you can drive there. Conatct me and I can get you directions.

    You will need full turnout gear and copies of ALL your current certs from your local, county or state fire academies. If you are local and can bring SCBA and spare bottle, do so. If you are traveling a great distance by plane and do not want to carry this, just bring your gear and you can use the Bucks county academy's SCBA or share with other guys.

    You all have my e-mail by now, my phone number if you need it is: (732) 312-3662.

    I am also going to try to schedule a similar challenge exam type situation fot July for all of those of you who can't make it tomorrow or who are not in as big of a time crunch as I and other are. It will probably be for late July, as the guy doing this for us is going out on medical leave until July sometime. I will post info here when I get it for all to view.

    If this is going on at the Bucks County training center in Doylestown, that's a hop away from me

    Timing sucks....but then again, lter in July might work. I might call a few friends and pull some strings for me (and see if I can get any others pulled).

    Thanks for hooking this up.

    Yup Capo...I've trained there before. Used to go over with my fellow USMC reservists there (Willow Grove NAS is a few minutes south of there).

    Once you get a date for the end of July....lemme know, and I'll see what I can do to help out ( I need a FF2 cert myself ).
