    Firefighting and the Reserves

    Well I know the civ fire departments LOVE people who are in military or ex military since a lot of training, specially the pre-employment at JIBC is done as para-military.  Literally as if it's bootcamp and of course you hafto follow orders to the T when on scene.  The thing is that for career...

    CF Firefighters

    Thanks guys, just did the exam.  Pretty common sense stuff, lot easier than the CFAT hahaha. I got a feeling I'll make it, 15 applicants, one dropped out after the physical fitness test (which was hell).  I can see 2 or 3 not making it but all the others just wow, they all did great.  No one...
