    I have some questions on TF1 as well. I've been thinking of joining and I've had the paperwork on my desk for a little while now. Some questions:
    How distributed is the membership? Is everyone from all over the state or is it mostly centered in the North?
    How often and distributed is the training? Will I be driving all over the state once a month?
    Is TF1 even looking for new members? Is it selective/compeditive to join?

    Seems to me if you want to belong to an elite unit, "driving all over the state" for training and being part of a very selective process would be a good thing?

    I didn't mean to imply that it wasn't a good thing. I'm all for good training no matter where it is. I'm just trying to get an understanding of how much travel and/ortime it would entail.

    Of course, the Wife-Acceptance-Factor* needs to be considdered.

    Anyone from NJ-TF1 here? Yes there are members here, training lots but depends on what part your assigned. PM me if you need more of an answer.

    Yes there are members from all parts of the state....... Career & Vol. firefighters, police officers, engineers, nurses, doctors, paramedics and others.

    Yes there is turn-over, as for training I can speak as a rescue specialist you are requied to make the yearly team meeting, plus during the month of your primary response there was been put in-place four training days of which you need to make two, and there is also the yearly team drill which runs two to three days.

    Yes there is a waiting list, as for how long you would wait for an interview only the TFL would know.

    It wouldn't hurt to apply.
