                          Pro:
                          10 days a month (Most places)
                          20 year retirement (In Utah)
                          Public loves you (Until budget time)
                          Brass poles
                          Traditional helmets (You know it Bou!)
                          Brotherhood & Fraternity to watch your 6!
                          Lots of time at home or to play (That 10 days a month thing!)
                          Getta break stuff!
                          You can be a field doctor (Paramedic)
                          Some good cooks work as firefighters

                          Cons:
                          24 hours a day (48 if you work with Bou)
                          Cops have the 20 year retirement too
                          Sleep in same quarters as a bunch of smelly, stinky, farting guys (Snoring too)
                          Some terrible cooks work as firefighters
                          Long hours (Running MANY calls!)
                          Working in the weather for long hours
                          Politics & Government
                          Chiefs (Sometimes)
                          Living with other people (who you DON'T love like your spouse)

                          The list could go on and on... it all depends on the person you ask.

                            Yea, it does seem as though its REAL tough to get on a fire dept.
                            Thanks for responding to my question =)

                              There IS a reason for that!
                              Good luck!
