i stay for a month in the U.S. and work at the FD Portage / IN and FD Chesterton / IN, also i spend many time at the VFD Beverly Shores and VFD Pine Town Ship
i want to know what it means to be a firefighter in U.S. and want to know more about the "BROTHEHHOOD", but ... it was many more what i could find out! Now i know what it mean´s to be a member of a "FIREFIGHTER FAMILY"
Thank you Himan´s, i will never forget what you have done for me!
Patrick, where in the US do you want to live? and why? After living so many years in the US, I would trade places with you anytime. Remember, the grass is not always greener on the other side. If you move to the US with your family, you will ending up on the losing side because you will have to pay for your own health insurance and most American companies don't offer retirement like in Germany. What about the family? Do the kids and wife speak English? Can your wife cook American style because you will be hard pressed to find German products here. America lives off a fast food and most things are artificial. What kind of work do you want to do here? Do you have an employer or family member that can sponsor you and your family? I know its alot of questions, but when you make the step it cost lots of money and if you make the wrong step or decision you could end up losing everyting over here. I'm not trying to scare you but in America its every man for himself. Maine has one of the best social systems...pretty close to Germany right now. So, if you have any questions, ask me. Take care, Horst

G'day Patrick. It looks like your question about RIT/On-Deck has been missed. Might be a better idea to start a new thread with your questions about what those things are? I have very little idea, as we don't use the 'RIT' concept in Australia and I'd never heard of the 'On-Deck' idea. Good luck.
