    What''s the word with NAS Lemoore fed fire? tell me about the culture there? Mandatory OT? What schedule are they on? What's the crew like? how many stations and apparatus? Mutual aid on both fire and ems calls? Schools and housing in the area. Anything else you could think of?

    Have no knowledge of it, looks like a busy flight base.

    But worked as a fed at two Navy bases, and loved it over the air force

    Only thing I did not like, is you were on the runway during all flight ops.

    And the reason I left feds is 24 on 24 off, still behind the times. And was the same for structural firefighting.

    Now they do have a great prevention program, so most buildings sprinkled and kept very clean and safe.

    We stayed on base, no mutual aid.

    Good luck!!

    Have you ever been a fed firefighter???

        Cool. Thanks. I actually work for the navy now

          Ok, than you are use to Navy life.

          I did six years with the feds

          Got tired of working 24 on 24 off 72 hours a week, when cities are doing 24 on 48 off around 56 a week and getting paid more

          Working for congress

          The structural firefighting was not up to date

          I would say maybe use it as a stepping stone to either go to a city dept or move on up in the fed system to something else.

          How soon do you get out???

          Your problem is you maybe competing against air force and other fed firefighters, that have been through the school and are certified.

          Not just ship board fire.

            Sorry. I'm actually a federal firefighter paramedic employee by the department of the navy. I came over from a busy city department. Around here the city guys work less but also don't make as much or have the federal benefits package. It's a big reason I made the jump. With the federal government I can one day retire. Plus the upward mobility and career opportunities are endless. City guys make more where you are?

              I usually do not like to say where I am

              As a fed
              I worked at a fed base in San Antonio


              and Miramar

              I would say yes city makes more than fed

              What I saw in the fed system, unless you want to wait forever for move up, you have to jump bases

              That is what I did, in about eight months went from 3 to 5 to 7 by BASE jumping. I was looking to try overseas or Alaska. But got married and tired of 72 hour weeks.

              The base you are looking at looks like one station so not sure how many per shift
