    Anyone who is a member of FACEBOOK, the online directory for college students. Please search for the group Firefighter's USA. We are making a group for all firefighters in the country.

    Groups only work for each individual school. Usually each school has at least one firefighter group.

    Are you sure the groups only work for the school. I thought if you searched for the group and asked to be invited it would work. If not I will probably just delete the group.

    I think it is for each school too, but I'm not positive on any changes that have been made.

    You can only join groups for the school you are in. If you have a friend from another school you can see their groups and info on their groups, but you can't join the groups.
    In otherwords, you can not make a group that includes people from other schools.

    Jake, facebook is GREAT if your in college. Otherwise, its pointless. It's very casual and informal and everyone here at my school uses it to add people that they met when they were wasted downtown earlier in the night. Thank God for Facebook, or I know that I wouldn't have kept in touch with some of the girls I've met. It's not just guys that do this either, its nothing to come home from a bar and have 3 friend requests from girls you met while you were there. Very, very handy tool.

    Most of which you have no idea you actually met!

    HAHA, nowadays people from all over come down to G-Vegas to party on Haloween, while the cops stand there in full riot gear with MP-5's and just watch!

    We hold it down in Chapel Hell for Halloween, but I've heard of people heading to the great metropolis of Greenville for Halloween. Although, after talking to several CHFD members, I'll think twice about going there for Halloween.. way too much gang stuff going on lately. The news doesn't catch any of the stories because they go in, scoop up the patient, and then assess and treat away from the crowd.

    Yea, its a really bad area for gang violence, the amount of armed robbery's have been on the rise lately. Yea I have friends that go to UNC Chapel Hill, I hear things are pretty crazy up there too. Do you work for Chapel Hill? If so, I heard a rumor that a guy I know hasnt been long went to work up there as assistant Chief.

    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.

    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.
