  • Secondary Income/ Side business

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to see if anyone has some suggestions on a good secondary job or side business that I could look into while I am working 24 on 48 off?

        As asked, what are your other skills? If you're a medic or even an EMT you might be able to find a gig on a private ambulance. Or as mentioned, a second fire department part-time, though as we all know, finding even one FD gig can be tough enough let alone landing a second one. Still an option to look into, no less.

          On my days off I'm part time at a second fire department and help teach fire and emt classes at a local community college.

                  Among other things...

                  I own my own pressure washing company, work teaching hazmat and tech rescue classes for a private company, and put in some adjunct instructor time with the Georgia Fire Academy.

                  My advice: whatever you decide to do, do it professionally. Don't take it as a part time venture that shouldn't be treated the same as a full time one. Whatever industry you go into already has enough half *****ing hacks. Don't be another one just because it isn't your primary job.

                        Asphalt. You've already proven yourself in High Temperature environments, so..........

                        Seriously, if the area where you are has a lot of Asphalt Driveways, etc, there is always room for someone to do light repairs, clean and fill cracks, and apply Sealer...... It's been good to me.....

                          What was your day job before FF? What skills do you have?

                          My academy class had representatives of EVERY construction trade. We could have built a house from the varied backgrounds we had. We also had everything from a former seminary-student (one of our instructors) to a sex toy saleswoman (a cadet).

                          A very diverse background in our dept...
