firefighters arent paid very well here at least to my knowledge. I was doing more of a thank you for the service, but sometimes i am not always sure because alot of them are fire fighters but also do alot of stuff on the side and still make great money and they have a wife that makes good money to. any input on that debate?

Well around here you start out around $40k and work 24 hr shifts. One day on two days off. Lots of time off and get paid to work out. At age 55 with 20 years in you can retire and have a kick ass pension. Not to mention they have great benefits. I'm a drywaller at heart but being a fireman would be an awesome job.

well,maybe you should think about moving to Ontario,Canada then,here is a link on a fireman's wage in Toronto ,or you can be a provincial cop (OPP)http://www.opp.ca/ecms/index.php?id=98 http://howtoliveincanada.com/work-as-a-firefighter-in-toronto/ remember that these are their starting wages.
guess my beef is most guys in construction.(the average worker) use to make twice as much money as your average civil servant.now it's the other way around.but if your going to be classified as a essential service holding a government job,then you should not be able to moon - light
