    hey new guy to andrews..I have not worked on the base but volunteer with guys who do. The base has a combination of military and civilian ff's, if you didnt know. If you love being a firefighter, you lucked out. Right outside the gate you have one of the busiest heavy rescue companies in the US that you can volunteer at, in PG county. You should also be able to take state fire classes and get them IFSAC certified to go on your DOD certs.

    Default Tell Chief Miles that fellow Jarhead ARFF said hi ;)

    That base is NICE. When I was stationed in Quantico I went there for a couple air shows (brought up a crew and a P-19). That was when the C-17 was first out. LOTS of eye candy

    Job wise - expect just about anything in there. Last time I was there they had the new crash trucks and they were just bad ***. Enjoy it. I'm originally from the Oxon Hill area
