    Firefly:

    You can find jobs over seas on dodfire.com under the jobs link.

    The requirements are as follows. For Firefighter you need FF1 and 2, Haz MAt Awareness and Ops, and ARFF. For Driver Positions you also need DO pumper, ARFF and maybe Areal. I believe most will require some sort of EMT cert and maybe Haz MAt Tech. I believe Rescue Tech 1 or 2 is also helpful. All certs must be either IFSAC or Pro-Board.

    I believe wackenhut is a major contract in Iraq.

    Default to Iraq...

    Yes Wackenhut is one contract company and you can find US Gov jobs on these links
    http://www.usajobs.com
    htpp://www.csc.com do a simple job search on this site for ff, ems etc
    http://www.indeed.com has contractor jobs list announcements
    http://www.federaljobsearch.com
    As with any job search, the results will depend on how info is put in.
    IE: firefighter, ems, fire service
    These contract sites will enable you to reach a successful tour in iraq and of course you might concider the National guard or us army and they will get you any additional training.

    Either way Best of luck in your adventure and Be safe
