We didn't get anything but some really crappy weather from T.S. Fay, but we've been having way more working fires than is the norm for Hilton Head. We've had an unusual number of bad fires from the severe lightning storms we've had off and on for the past two months.
We're building a new station on the north end, construction on our new training center has started, and we get the first of 10 new pumpers in about 3 to 4 weeks...not bad for the worst budget year we've had in a while.
Hilton Head is a pretty good place to work. We don't get the amount of working fires that Savannah does, but we do enough to stay interesting but we don't get hammered that often.
We don't do very much rope rescue work, but I did enough of that in my days with Chattanooga/Hamilton County and with Greenville County to know theory from effective practice.
Stay safe on your side of the Savannah River, brother.
Junior and I worked together at Ft Stewart from 94-96. I actually organized his bachelor party in 95 or 96. Havent heard that name in a long time.
Keep trying, and the department down the road from Corpus is hiring term firefighters. its a way to get in the door. Ingleside. Take a look.
