Im a Senior at GBHS, and Im a Junior Volunteer Firefighter, and Ive been on the Dept. for almost 2 years now, but for a senior class that is required to graduate, I need to do a project which invloves a job shadow among alot of other things. I know that a job shadow is intended to be close up and in person, but I cant find the time nor a paid firefighter within 100 miles. So Im asking if someone, or even a few people could answer some questions. But please no volunteer firefighters.
