    I was thinking about joining the local volunteer fire department. They have a sign outside saying they will train firefighters and EMT's for free. Well I looked into it and it seems you have to pay annual fee's in order to volunteer. Yes thats right boys and girls, you have to PAY to risk your life for total strangers. What a deal /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Aaaah the Fire Academy. Those were the days. I did it durning the late summer here in central Texas. Probably the best time of my life besides basic training. Have fun, but take it very serious. Those instructors know what they're talking about. They arent teaching you how to put out fire, theyre teaching you how to do it and stay alive.

    [/ QUOTE ]usually the payback for 5000.00 worth of training is to do a year residency in return, but if you get hired on career then they release you from it.
