    Like I've said before I have various formal qualifications that are recognised within New Zealand and just wondering if it is even possible to cross-credit these to IFSAC, etc. If it is possible, who would be the best person to touch base with and what would the process be?
    Im in Ohio. I contacted the Ohio State Fire Academy and since my certs for FF2, Inspector and Hazmat were prior to 2002 I was grandfathered into IFSAC. Had to fill out one form and send them $25. Got my IFSAC certs in a week.

    Yeah one of the guys is my mate - have looked at this option too. Just trying to think a bit broader and maybe not limit myself. What is the pay like? I know its reduced but is it more than normal? Still gotta earn a bit more to compensate for the time away.

    Thanks

    I'm an ex-firefighter (left in beginning of this year) from the Army over in New Zealand. I'm wondering what would be the chances of being able to pick up a contract in Iraq, Afghan, etc.

    Not sure if you have to be a US citizen or other specifics.

    I'm not sure how I would match the quals over to the equavilient of yours too. I spent 10 years in there doing it and became an Officer. Have quals in vegetation, urban fire rescue ops, airport and industrial emergency response as well as a few other quals (BA maintainer and EMT - we call it PHEC, Pre-Hospital Emergency Care).

    I'll keep it fairly short. Any ideas or steerage would be great.

    Thanks
    As INUrDue already said DynCorp does hire firefighters from outside the US. BUT, the catch is that you have to have IFSAC, DOD, or PRO-Board certs to apply. I don't they pay as much for firefighters outside the US either.

    I believe the contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan you have to be a U.S. citizen for the fire services. Sallyport Global will be taking over the Iraq contract but they have other contracts around the world. You could check with them. sallyportglobal.com The other contractors are KBR, ITT and Dyncorp. Hope this helps. Good luck
