    well, I'm no expert, but IMO, it all depends on your Dept works inregards to Vollys/Pros, ranks/credentials, etc. I would assume though, being an Explorer, a dedicated on that is, would help the hiring process at your Dept, potentially others too. (a good prerequisite)

    Maybe I'm just misinterpreting this, but what do you mean by "Say They Except You Then..."

      Ask the department you want to join. We can't tell you how individual departments work since they're all different.
      Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

        Well An Older Explorer In My Post Took His Formal Interveiw To Be a Volenteer And They Approved It But Being A Volenteer You Dont Get Paid. Also He Said Something About Getting Picked Up And Sponsered By Some One Before You Become Paid. So My Question Is Who Would Sponser You CDF Or Your Dept.

          Ok. Lets try this again.

          Ask the department you want to join. We can't tell you how individual departments work since they're all different.

          You are asking a question that can not be answered by the general firefighting community. It is like asking the forum what your chief is eating for dinner. You need to ask the people with that department because they are the only ones that know how that department works for hiring.

            I DO NOT THINK HE WILL UNDERSTAND YOU UNLESS YOU LOCK THE CAPITALS!!


            AND AS FOR NOT KNOWING WHAT YOUR CHIEF IS EATING FOR DINNER--JUST SHOWS THAT YOU HAVE NO REAL INTEREST IN PROMOTION--SUGGEST YOU READ "FIREFIGHTING MENU FOR THE UPWARDLY MOBILE- MONDAY THRU FRIDAY-PART 2" BEANS ARE A GOOD STANDBY

                I did. Unlike you who brought this thread back to make up for your deficiancies in other areas. As usual, your non-sense has done nothing but hurt your own reputation. In fact, what you are doing now probably violates some ToS and it is wasting other people's time in unrelated threads. I'm sure the webteam will think very highly of you.

                  I think nmfire said it better and more politely than some of us would to that kid. Sure got some balls coming on here and bashing our senior members MutualAidSupply. This place is kinda like a real firehouse. No matter how much time you got on elsewhere, when you come here, your our probie.

                    *LOL* Mutual will soon have a supply requisition he doesn't want...namely a whole crate of:

                          It is pathetic that in order to feel self worth you guys have to gang up on one person like Elementary school kids. Shows lack of self esteem and insecurity.

                            This is almost a year old, and yet you have to bring it back to the top?

                              Obviously nothing has changed with him.
