Wanted - Potential firefighting positions for a 30 year old white male who does not live in the location in which the fire department is located. I would like to know if there is a place in which there are not hiring quotas, residency requirements or anything that would be a potential hinderance in at least applying for a position. I'm trying, but boy is it frustrating trying to get your foot in the door! Anybody else like to vent their frustrations about this?
