I have not seen this on here so lets try a new discussion. I started late in the field but if I could , I would love to be in the Denver area . Maybe Westminster or Thornton fire depatments would be good since I grew up there . I knew allot of the Westminster f.f. 's while I was young as a friends dad was on the dept . They always had a great dept. Where would you be and why?
I'd love to work for one of the Provincial Ministries of Natural Resources or for Parks Canada as a wildland guy and then continue volunteering with whatever local dept. I may live around if I got on. I do love were I am at though....but something about the wild lands I love......got a small taste for it when I was on a tiny vol. dept. in the Rockies....
Well my way of thinking is that as firefighters we are here to help those in need, so given a choice my answer would be Detroit, because I don't know of any other department that is under as much pressure as they are.
As for LAFD - well those helmets would be a turn off
Orange County Fire Authority (California)....impressed with what they have and how they train....and they don't have to worry about Engines freezing up tighter than a well diggers butt or tighter than a sailors butt in the shower
