    Default Whats up...

    Hey guys, Im supposed to be going to Houston on April 10. I have had my phone interview and waiting on a second packet. It has been about two weeks and am getting anxious since it has not come in yet. Does it take a while for the packet to get here or ?... Also, just because you go to houston, does that mean you are going as long as you pass your physical and other things? Thanks for any replys.

    Looks like I'm leaving in the April 17th group. I had a knee injury recently, will still be able to go on time, just a little weak in the knee. Anyone else going at the same time e-mail at ff120medic@netscape.com

    I know this is off subject, but is it our responsibility to take care of all of our shots and immunizations, or do they offer them in houston?

    From my understanding you have to take care of all of them before you get there. They send you a sheet with the ones you have to get and you are suppose to be able to get them at the health dept. or your doc's office. You have to make sure though its on that yellow shot record card.

    Default Lack of gear?

    You hear all the horror stories from guys that have done their time in Iraq and come back saying that there is a lack of bunker gear. I have noticed that the stories on this subject are a year or more old... Does this mean the problem has been fixed? Are there still issues with gear? If so, would it be a good decision to bring your own?

    For the most part, the problem is fixed. I have 2 sets of gear (ARFF and structural). Gear gets issued in baghdad. SOME stations have gear there. You MIGHT have problems with certain sizes of gear if they're popular. They try to order, but when it takes MONTHS for it to get there, they have no control over it. But yes, most people are getting issued NEW gear.....

    Thanks... I figured that it wasnt much of an issue anymore, but thought I would ask just in case.
