Searching for help to be firefighter
I would like to be a Firefighter in the Boston area.
My Grandfather[44yrs old] and Great Great Grandfather[29yrs old] both were firefighters killed in the line of duty in Boston.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I think your best course of action would be to determine what the requirements of departments in the area are, and then working toward obtaining what is necessary. The best way to find this information is to contact the departments directly. I don't know how it works down there but departments here have "hiring information packages" that tell you exactly what is needed. When you want answers, go directly to the source, taking an indirect route doesn't always guarantee correct information.To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

Ever think that maybe your family is jinxed when it comes to the boston fire brigade?
Good luck with joining and good on you for following in their footsteps. Hopefully you will return home from every call with the rest of your crew."There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."
For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

Anyways, your family's sacrifice is noble indeed, but perhaps product tester at a pillow factory is the better bet.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

What is that supposed to mean? You wouldn't be making a generalized assumption of someone based on what country they are from would you?To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

Getting back the to the subject.Originally Posted by TommyG79
If you haven't yet looked at the web site SAFD46Truck posted, do so.
Also do you only want to be with Boston, or are you also interested in the villages around Boston? I do recommend testing for departments you can test for, at least get the experience.
FireHouse also gives job listings if you pay for membership. There are also other web sites that do the same thing. Look in the newspaper"S" and postings in fire stations and in school(most likely the ones with Fire sciense). You could also request to be put on a mailing list for the cities you are really interested in.
GOOD LUCK AND BEST WISHES!

I have to agree with allineedisu on this. The guy has lost several members of his family on the job. No one wants to see any Brother or Sister get killed or loose their lives on the job, doing what they love as their chosen profession. Why any of these members would be jinxed?
To say, that if they were garment makers and the garments some way covered them up and they died making them, one wouldn’t say, then you should have been a fisherman for a living.
We all take this career seriously and know that it losses upwards to over 100 members each and every year on the job. There isn’t one of these fine Brothers or Sisters that have given the extreme sacfrice would have worked in any other profession, knowing that the one they chose is the most dangerous one. Having know and seen at least 20 members loose their lives, in my time in the fire service, I still remember them and know that they gave their lives going the job that they loved.
Good luck TommyG79, I hope that you can pass all the hurdles and become a member of the Boston Fire Department.Stay Safe and Well Out There....
Always remembering 9-11-2001 and 343+ Brothers
