    I plan on taking the test next month for Myrtle Beach Fire Dept. and there was a few things I was curious about. What exactly does the test include and what should I expect. Also, I am in VA so I was also curious about the cost of living in Myrtle Beach. I have heard that it wasn't very high but I'm not positive.

    I would highly suggest you attend the walk thru of the CPAT. You should be able to find a lot of stuff on firehouse.com in regards to it.

    I was supposed to take the test last year but was snowed in. As far as cost of living it has gone up quite a bit in the last few years. Most have to work second and third jobs. A lot of guys volly for Horry County which pays $10/call and depending on where you live some guys make real good money doing that in their spare time.

    Expenses all depend on how much you want to enjoy the area. There is a ton to do around there, especially if you are single. Taxes are cheap as well.

    I lived there for 6 years and moved to PA about a year and a half ago - wife wanted to be closed to her family.
