    Default National Guard Firefighting

    I was looking to go into the national guard as a Firefighter in Illinois or a state near by. If I did this would I be stationed at a base in the state or be sent overseas to a base??? If I did join the National Guard as a firefighter would I get some or all of college payed for and does national guard count on fire department test for points? thanks for your time.

    I see he still hasn't learned.....

    He would Ladder 8, except that it would involve him having to do some work....Like google-ing the phone number......God forbid he learn what google, or even what the search feature is for on here.....Had he searched, he would have realized there are about 90 threads on this very subject.......

    He would never make it in the military anyways.. HE expects too many other people to do his work for him.

    Wow someone is upset! I have googled this and nothing came up that would have gave me what I asked on this thread, and I wanted to know what I asked before I talked to a recruiter so they do not try to pull anything.

    WFD,

    Do yourself a favor and call the recruiter and ask the questions. Let us know what you find out.

    Also....

    Please do a "Search" before posting - you may find your questions answered or your videos already posted.

    Default 661st Firefirefighter Team Illinois Army National Guard.

    I was the first AIT soldier for the Illinois Army National Guard. We have two teams. Each have there own TFFT. As of right now we are full. Won't hurt to get ahold of your local recruter.
