    Sad to hear this. I know many thought things would be better when WSI left.

    Question though. Does anyone know if they are still hurting for officers? Or are they (A/C's) getting the screw as well?

      I am not sure if they are still needing officers. I know our base is full but not sure how others are. I will ask around.

            Hopefully I can help. Your certs need to be DOD, which means Proboard or IFSAC, as you probably already know.

            I was hired with:
            FF I and II (Required)
            Hazmat Ops (Required)
            Telecommunicator I and II, (I am not sure if it's a requirement, but everyone at my base has it)
            ARFF (Not a requirement, but will help your chances greatly)
            DO: Pumper (Not a requirement)
            DO: Mobile Water Supply (Not a requirement)
            EMT-B (First Responder cert is the minimum requirement.

            Also to note, While ARFF and DO is not a min requirement, it seems that having one or the other will greatly improve your chances, with an emphasis on ARFF.




            EMT-B (I think first responder is a required minimum)

                      Wow...finally? I guess the right minister of the right department of the Iraqi government finally got his bribe money.

                      Safe trip, godspeed, and prepare to pocket some cash.

                        • A little help please

                          I was one of the guys hired by WSI and while waiting on my plane ticket, was told that they lost the contract to SP in October. I applied for SP right then and there. I haven't heard anything. I have a son being born in a month, and I really need this job. Should I apply again, or with another company in Afgan, or what should I do? Anyone with info please email me at [email protected]. Im barely ever on firehouse so please email me with the info. thanks guys and stay safe

                            • anything new???

                              It's been over two months since the last post. Can anyone tell us if the contract has gotten extended after the first of the year? Is anything going on that someone can bring us up to speed on without compromising opsec?

                                What I hear from a friend still over there is that everything is more or less in limbo. Some bases are definitely closing, others staying open, some stuff moving, etc etc. As my buddy told me, everything is firmly set in jello. I know, that's no new information, but it's the latest as I understand it.
