    the weather in Fairbanks kind of scares me. I was hoping somewhere along the coast, Kenai pennisula or the souther part near canada.

    Thanks for the insight though.

    Alaskan Departments that are hiring

    I've really been thinking about moving to Alaska. I've looked at several departments but most of the ones I talk to all seem to try to hire paid spots from within the volunteer ranks.

    I currently work for the 3rd largest department in the nation and I have 6 years paid experience, all of them as a paramedic.

    Any idea's on cities that are looking to hire or what not?

    I know Anchorage is saying that they are supposed to have a test in 2010 but i'm not going to hold my breath
