Florida FF with a question
Hello I am a FF in South Florida. I was born and raised in TN but havent lived there since my early Teens. I have been wanting to move back but as I understand it, Florida makes a lot more money than Tennessee Firefighters. Living is cheaper in TN though. My question is, is the salary your given enough to live off of and raise a family with? I hope I don't sound disrespectful asking the question. It is a strong desire of mine to be back in TN but am worried about the paycut. Thanks and go VOLS!!!
P.S. I've actually considered going to Iraq, just to raise the extra money to help me with a move to TN. Thats how bad I want to leave Florida and go back home.
Cleveland, Tn pays in the 30's?
Hey, I too am originally from Cleveland, Tn. but now a Jacksonville Floridian. I'm putting in my apps around North FL but also interviewing in K-ville for the 20-some recruits they're hiring. The pay is actually 27K the first year and should go up from there but where did you hear Cleveland pays in the 30's? I'm not saying it's not true... I'm saying "DAMN!" I never thought of moving home but that much money is tempting... Where do you work and live?
