concidering Fire Protection
Right now I'm in the process of possibly enlisting in the AF. The biggest decision for me is deciding what job to go in as. I originally listed Loadmaster, then some things came up with my paperwork and I didn't leave on my leave date. My family comes from a strong aviation background, and also a strong law enforcement background, and those are my interests as well. I would've listed Security Forces but that's a whole nother beast. Security Forces I'm realizing is not where I need to be in the Air Force. Much much different than civilian law enforcement. I'm a dispatcher for a local PD and FD. Working the fire side brings back memories of when I was young and looked up to these firefighters so much, and admired them so much, and aspired to be like them when I grew up. I'm concidering Fire Protection when I enlist. I've done Search and Rescue for the past 6 years with the Civil Air Patrol and it's what I love. Helping people is what I love. I don't really know what the point of this thread is...I guess I would just like some input or feedback from the AF guys about this, how you like your job, any other pertinent info that might be helpful for me.

I love my job to death. I feel that firefighting is the way to go. I'm stationed @ little rock afb and its cool. It's kinda boring compared to some civilian departments out there because most calls are med runs and automatic fire alarms but it might be different at any other base. We have a pretty good group of people so that makes it alot better. But the type of trainnig you get is very good. Its a good experience and you get to serve your country, meet new people and travel. So It's all about what you like if you like alot of action some bases might not be for you or the military in general. But it is a good job to have.
