    Well I got in touch with a couple af FD's back in Oregon and boy do I have my work cut out for me. Thats ok though cause I am ready for it. From what I gather I should go to the local college and take the dual degree in EMS/SFS (structural fire science), along with maybe volly for the local FD. Being that I am overseas right now and for the next 1 1/2 I am getting in touch with the college to see what I can do for that degree at a distance. I cant wait to get the reply. Anyways I hope this sounds good and works out for me...

    I looked up some stuff about my state, OR, and found out that in Portland they offer firefighter trainee program which entails:

    Our Trainee Program is a stepping stone into our regular Fire Fighter Program. It consists of a comprehensive eight week training cycle located at our Training Center. As a student you will earn your Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) State certification, which you need to get hired as a Portland Firefighter; you will also get hands-on experience with the tools of the trade, and advance your physical abilities to the strenuous fitness level required. If you are successful, you will then be considered for an appointment into our Firefighter Program.

    I think I am going to look into this. What do you think...

    Thank you. I posted a thread in the EMS section with some questions. They were mainly about where to start, training needed, college needed, where to look, and anything else that might come to mind. If I get out of the Corps I want to do something worth while...

    New and interested in firefighting!!!

    Hello all my name is Justin and I am a Marine Sgt serving in Kinshasa, Congo as security for the American Embassy. I am interested in learning all I can about maybe becoming a firefighter once my contract is up. Not sure yet if I will get out but always good to start the planning. Anyways I am hoping to get input from friends and family of firefighters as well as them selves. Info on how to become, training, life of, experiences, advice, and anything that might come to mind. If you know of a place to look up info or if this is not the place to be let me know. Thank you for your time...
