Firefighter career


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Really not worth it to sign on? What job are u doing now? Which station were u from?

 

I tot of signing on.. still undecided. Now that u have mention it, i think its a rather laoya job. Wad qualifications do u hold anyway?

 

im not saying its not worth it...it is worth it if ur goin to do it till u retire but if u have second thought halfway den ur chances at other jobs other den fire fighting is very slim due to the lack of experience. Im frm a hazmat station in the east currently im working as a technician for a company in the oil and gas and i get paid more den a wo2. i was a sec com den. and i have a higher nitec cert...and frm what my friends who are regulars do to upgrade themselves to diploma is not easy, first u have to study something related to the line which most take the building management or something which deals in security and fire safety, ur off days and work days are spent going for night class, on top of ur class work u have ur paper work to do.

 

one of the reason why i didnt sign on cos the pay is high but it does not justify the amount of work u have to do

Just last week went for the 2nd interview and the physical test. Got the feeling wont get, and true enough received letter thanking me for applying. LOL. Really disappointed as I thought maybe high chance can get in. Now need wait 6 months then try applying again. Sad. My father recommend me try the Airport Fire Service. Is it any good?

Is this thread dead?:dot:. Personally I feel that career in SCDF as a Fire Rescue Specialist is challenging yet worth it if you up to mentally n physically challenge.

 

So u are an ERS?
