Quick question for ya, why are you a member of The Iowa firefighters group? Only reason I ask is, I grew up in Iowa and moved to Colorado and now I'm in fire wondered if it's the same story with you ...

Hi Chels,

Welcome to FFN. I see you have FF experience so you must have some DOD or IFSAC certifications, those will convert or be accepted for NFPA Pro-Board civilian ceritifications. Depends on the state in which you desire to work in and what they use for curriculum.

I see your in Hawaii, always wanted to see HI but have not had the chance yet.

Take Care Stay Safe

my youngest is considering options as well as my oldest (18 and 22). my wife is convinced that all women in the navy will be somehow abused and taken advantage of. not to be shallow here, but from your photograph, you are strikingly beautiful, just like my wife and girls, but yet you seem to be holding your own, and enjoying what you are doing, and from Hawaii as your home port on top of it all. I liked you from the start. You've got both feet firmly planted on the ground girl. Your dad must be proud. (my perspective of course... a little biased...) Stay safe protecting our country Kelikea (Chelsea). Aloha, Mike

So am I to understand that you are working aboard a ship, perhaps being employed by the US Navy? I would like to find out more from your perspective so I can offer good counsel to one of my three daughters.
