Hey whats up my name is Rob, I'm 22 years old. I joined my fire departments rescue squad at 17 to try and get some experience as a EMT before joining the United States Coast Guard. Thats when i found out that it was ran by the towns Fire Department and decided to become a firefighter and i'm now in the very last stages of becoming a career firefighter in the city of Wilmington in Delaware. I've passed the recruitment process so i am waiting for the city to start hiring and hopfully i will be selected to start soon and can start my career.
Still No Contract or Word on any New Firefighters as of yet....Station 1 on my shift has been slow.....but that may be a good thing???? Stay Safe. Still very busy I have too many things going on, boy do I need a vacation!!!
