  • New from Ohio

    Hey everyone! I stumbled across this site and couldn't help myself but join. My name is Matt and I soon leave for Lackland Air Force Base in Texas where I will commence my firefighter training. I am an E-3 (Airmen First Class) in the Ohio National Guard at the 178th Fighter Wing (F-16 support) in Springfield, OH (I live in Columbus). I requested this career field upon enlisting because I would like to persue a civillian firefighting career. My dad is a police officer, my mother a nurse, and I would be a 21 year old college student who isn't content with the college experience at all. I've always wanted to be a firefighter, but was pressured into continuing my education. That, has come to a screeching halt because it is time for me to do what my heart tells me.

    That being said, I look forward to chatting with all of you and hopefully picking up on a few pointers along the way to help me become as successful in this field as I can. Feel free to say hi!

    Welcome to the forums from a fellow buckeye.

    I'm from Toledo, you will find that there are quite a few Ohioans on here.

      Welcome aboard

      Hi Matt,

      Good luck in your basic military training at Lackland AFB. Afterwords, you will head to Goodfellow AFB in west Texas for your FF training. The Fire Academy is a great school with excellent instructors. Take care and stay safe!!
      Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

      Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.

          Thank you for the welcome. I have another unit training day next weekend that I'm very much looking forward to. I'm excited to leave for basic and then head straight to fire school afterwards. Being gone for almost 6 months total will be a nice vacation from normal day-to-day routine
