    Durham burns the hell out of some stuff and everyone I've met is very traditional and cares about the Fire Service traditions, etc. The guys that I've talked to said it's very, very rare to go one cycle and not catch at least 1 good job. Only thing that sucks about Durham (besides the area..) is the pay. Increase the pay to equal Charlotte or other larger cities.. and I'm there!

    Don't know if you've seen Durham's UNofficial site.. www.durhamfire.net it has some great info and pictures of jobs.

    I'm friends with a Captain up there and during a couple of his classes I've taken, he's show video of jobs that their ride along videoographer from Duke has shotten. Pretty good jobs most of them.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    Who was the Capt? I've had classes with a couple of their captains/BCs (all top notch guys). I've seen some of their vids.. some funny, some for training purposes (like the one where they set up a Master Stream on an apt. fire and ended up spraying clear over the entire building... missing the whole thing, and never knew it! ), and some of just good working fires. I have a few videos/slide shows on their page, but I wish they'd get more...

    facebook was cool (and addictive) like the first couple months i had it... now like 2 years later... i only check it when they send me a message saying that i have a new friend request or something... my friends and i used to be obsessed with facebook, checking it like constantly, but now we all just use myspace more.

    Same here, don't check it very much. But I don't go on myspace either. There is only so much you can do with those sites and most of the thrill is gone soon after making a profile.

    I see that we do have something else in common though, we are both props. I play loose-head prop for the Manhattan College Jaspers. We just started up our team and we are entering union play this fall.

    I use facebook and I didn't want to but found it handy when I needed to find someone in one of my classes. I just logged on to add the firehouse group and thats the first time I have logged on since school ended. I will never join myspace. I despise myspace.

    Firehouse should make a section for college students. That would be pretty sweet, help out finding depts around schools and whatever.

    Myspace has too many distraught kiddies.

    Facebook is a little bit better, I think, mainly because you can't get a profile unless you are in college (or high school, for that branch).

    Though, no one has posted anything on my Facebook wall since May 5. So, yeah, it can get old.

    But it can be a handy tool!

    Edit: I just did a search for Firefighters USA, it turned up nothing. I think the searches don't work all that well. I didn't know there were so many groups already out there for FF and rescue.

    My girlfriend wanted myspace and I told her there is no way in hell she was going to get it. I worked the last 2 years during my summer as a deputy sheriff, and I would never let anyone I care about use that site. Its an absolute predators playground. I understand not everyone posts all their info but there are way to many dirtbags who basically use that place as a catalog to find people they can victomize. I cannot stand myspace and if I had my way it would be gone. Even facebook, people post pics of thier dorm rooms with all their expensive stuff then they have where they live in their description. My two cents.
