I was curious as to how many other departments or districts use debrucing to retain funds for large capital purchases. My department has just ordered a new engine and it has been paid for in full do in large to use of the funds we have been able to retain through this program.See More

I gave you kudos before reading your profile. You are the type of person the fire service needs. I'm retiring now but for you, here's a website that will help you with your goals. The guy that runs the site is a retired Fire Captain that helps folks get hired by teaching them how to do well on the oral boards. You can be physically rock solid but then blow it on the orals. Do your homework Wade, and I know you will. Let me know if I can ever be of assistance with your future endeavors for you and your family. TCSS, Mike Schlags, Fire Captain, Santa Barbara, CA
