    Shoot, I almost forgot, that Amendment One shot all us Fla depts right in the foot when it comes to funding. Well maybe once the time you get your Standards, and Paramedic, they will be hiring....

    So basically I don't have a chance and it would be pointless to try?

    Hell, I can always go down and visit... Should be down there about this time next year.

    Its tough to call right now. There are lawsuits, and countersuits right now. It is still a beautiful area to live in. Hopefully this time next year, I will be in the hiring process for Orlando FD....*crosses fingers*

    That sucks... Don't you wish sometimes that everything was civil? Well... I guess that word is overused - I mean, how can you have a "civil" war?
    Definately a beautiful area... I'd go back in a heartbeat when the chance arises.
    Niiice. From what I hear on here and other places, Orlanado is a pretty good department... That's on my "dream-list" too. That's at the bottom, though because I don't think I have much of a chance making it on there...

    I spent the weekend at the Orlando Fire Conference. That pretty much solidified my commitment to work there. As long as you are in shape, and know your book, then you are good to go. And the Brotherhood there is beyond anything I have anything I have ever experienced....

    Thanks
    Hey,I am the captain/president of my post and we have a pretty good amount of SOG's we have to follow. IF you are interested i can email them to you . My Email is COmngetit24@aol.com. For the most part it is. You cannot ride on Med calls if you are not EMS Apprentice certified. You can go on all trucks. You cannot go on mutual aid forestry fires. Unless like me and another Explorer we are Forestry 1 certified so we can. On fire scenes we can do exterior attacks. Climb ladders. but cannot exceed 35 feet which is our highest ground ladder. If it is mutual aid it is mostly "gopher" stuff but at a fire in our town it can range from many things. I have been on calls where i was the first man on the nozzle because my company was the first truck on scene. (exterior line)

    No mutual aid responses.
    No driving apparatus.
    No red lights on vehicles until 18.
    Pager issued when 16 and/or after 6 months.
    Pager may not be on at school.
    May not leave school or school function for calls.
    Those are our rules.
    I'm a Jr. FF in Baileyton, TN and I'm the only Jr. FF in the Dept, so the above rules are the same except that I'm home-schooled so I can respond whenever, and I can go on Mutual Aid calls, our dept. doesn't allow red-lights, and since you have to be 16 to get into the dept. that's when you get your pager. I hope I was understandable. I do know a buddy of mine is in a dept. that will let him do interior as long as the fire is under control. The only problem I have with that is: we all know how fast a fire can get out of control.

    16 to get into the Department as a JUNIOR, or as a actual volunteer FIREFIGHTER? I always thought it was 18, or is that just in Ohio?

    Rules are different from state to state.

    Like others have said it changes state to state. It's 16 in MD to get in a junior, but you can still get your EMT-B and FFI & II certifications.
