I have a current contract that isnt up untill next december so i want to get this started so i can roll right over into it. I have

          not sure

          I am currenty in Indiana 20 minutes south of Indianapolis. I have thought about civilian departments but everyone i have talked to has told me that most depts are on hireing freezes. For example Indy Fire is on a 4 year hireing freeze. I am willing to relocate to where ever it takes.I thought if i went overseas i may have the oppertunity to make alot of money as well as get my foot in the door with some big companies for things state side. I Can extend a year at a time where i am at but there is little to no advancement and at my age and place in my career i want to try to make every ambition to advance in my career. I am open to any advice or guidance that can be offered.

            Start applying now if your planning on getting out at 4 years. You have all DOD certs, so its just a matter of finding a company hiring FF's. When it comes time for your interview, give them your seperating date. You can also promote up while overseas, and FF is the easiest way to get your foot in the door. Plus, like me, you have ARFF Cert and DO Cert.

            You might look at NAS Crete too. It is an open base, attached to the International AP as well. They hire year round for civilian DO's and up. It is a 2 year commitment and they pay your travel and household goods, + one vehicle, just as the military pays active duty. Plus a housing and food allowance, since you will live off base. DOD also has civilian FFs in Italy and Guam. Keep your options open since you are young and probably not married yet. They (DOD) hire Fire Inspectors all over the world to, at 10x's the bases they hire just FF's. Since you have FI 1 and 2.
