    Default Hey from California

    Hello to the Brave.
    I am a 20 year old Chemical Operator/Industrial firefighter in Northern California. I often read the forums and thought i would introduce myself. I am trained in rope rescue, chemical and wetland fires and am a current Hazwopper. I am looking forward to posting and meeting you all.

    Hi Andrew,

    Welcome to the boards! I am a new member aswell. Based in Surrey, UK.
    I have just applied to become a volunteer police officer.

    How long have you been a firefighter? What's life like in Norther California?

    Take Care!

    Thanks for the welcome Jack

    Claire,
    To answer your question its nice up here in northern california. I have been part of my industrial fire unit for a little over a year. Being in california though with our strict safety laws and constant patrolling from so many different agencies its hard to ever put the training to use. Every year we go to the Fire Academy in Elko which is just one giant mock refinery that they light on fire. Allows us to put some of our training to good use.
    When will you know if you are accepted as a volunteer police officer?
