Been a PM for 7yrs and FF for 4 yrs. Looking into moving back up north where most of my family lives. Havent looked into which state I want to move to though. I need some information on what most Depts. require from out of state FF looking for employment. Ive done some research but Ive hit a dead end on if my FF cert is any good up north ( NY, NJ, MASS, PA area) I know I can applies for reciprocity for the state of NY for my EMT and Medic. Is it trues that u have to actually live in the city to be able to apply for most FF jobs? Can any link a site or help me out with some basic Info on getting a job up north.. Before I move I want to know If I can even get a job first.

Thanks
