    Smile firefighter looking for work

    Hi All! I have 30 years in the fire service, 23 years as a career firefighter. I'm looking to retire from my curent department and starting a new career in the fire service. I'm 48 yrs old, and I held the rank of Deputy Chief for 8 yrs. and I am currently a Captain in Fire Prevention and Code Enforcement. I also do Investigations.

    Is there any Departments that hire retired firefighters?

    You could always start your own consulting business...
