                I'm a professional firefighter in Victoria, Canada. My department has done several exchanges in the past and I have permission to organise one. Interested in anywhere in Europe. The only catch is that my time frame is short. I'm hoping to organise the exchange for after September 2015. Reason for this is that I had a department lined up but it looks like it may not work out now, and I would hate to miss the opportunity to do the exchange.

                            My name is Pau, I'm a full time firefighter since 2005, based in the city of Barcelona.

                            I'm seeking an exchange with primarily a firefighter from an english speaking country. The only issue is that you have to be able to speak a minimum of spanish to communicate in the job!
                            I'm thinking about an exchange for about 9 or 12 month

                            Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city with around 1.5 million people, surrounded by mountain and sea. Here, you have plenty of things to do, beaches, mountain, ski (2h), bars, restaurants,.... Many things.

                            We have six fire stations in Barcelona and we work in squads, exactly. In each station are normally two squads working in turns. We also have ambulance in most stations. We are an all-hazards fire and rescue service.
                            Also, we work 24h and then we have 96h free.

                            If you are interested feel free to send me a mail!

                            Pau Herrero
