  • Station Live Ins/Bunkroom Residents

    I was wondering if anyone knew some information about these live ins & locations? Maybe some personal experience? I am looking for some in California or back east. Website links would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Check the Department links section and look for Berwyn Heights, Hyattsville, Kentland... might be what you are looking for. They are in Maryland.
    Hey, it's MY opinion, not that of my department or peers.

      Call FF Winkley at 707.443-9042 up in Northern CA about the resident program at Samoa Peninsula Fire District (which is near Eureka, CA, up in the Redwoods. Basically, you get FF1 training, First Responder, EMT-1 training, your Class B or whatever it is driver's license, and your choice of two colleges (Humboldt State University, College of the Redwoods) within 15-20 minutes driving time. Good surfing, but bring your wetsuit!

        Yes on the Berwyn Heights. A friend of mine did it while he went to school down there. EXCELLENT program. Great for Rescue & Truck work.

            An additional attraction about Berwyn Heights...They are overdue to burn the roof off of another garden apartment in Springhill Lake.

                    You can try College Park VFD, Hyattsville VFD, Berwyn Heights VFD. These are especially nice if you're a student cause all are close to the University of Maryland. They've also got a lot of students who staff them. All are pretty good places and run a good amount of calls. They're not the busiest in PG County but their busy enough when you got other stuff like work and school to do...

                      HI, I know you stated that you are looking for departments out west or in the east, but there is a program like this in Southern Illinois or at least I know it used to be available. The Area of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is mostly rural and there is a depertment there that has a huge Fire District. They had this type of program. They would go to the college and inform the students that they would provide free room and board if they would get the required fire service classes. I believe that they are required to become a Firefighter II and that they would have a schedule worked out so that they had around the clock coverage. It seems to have worked well for them.
