Official Description

It goes without saying that the Air Force operates in an environment unlike any other, and therefore we need Fire Protection specialists unlike any others. In this field, you'll be trained to deal with everything from brush fires to burning rocket fuel and hazardous material fires. You'll also be stationed on an Air Force base using the latest equipment and will occasionally help out local civilian fire departments when needed. Fire Protection is intense but very rewarding as you'll not only be putting out fires, but you'll also be saving lives. From airforce.com.

Detailed Description

Fire Protection consists of everything you imagine when you think of a Fire Fighter, and more. You’ll be responsible for both structural and aircraft fires, as well as other emergency situations. The extent of job performance will vary greatly depending on base assignment and mutual aid agreements in the area.

What an average day is like

This will depend on your fire department. Most work 24hr On-Duty/24hr Off-Duty. There are others that work 24/48; 48/48; 48/72. It is dependent on the leadership at the time. Day starts with roll-call to make sure everyone arrived safely and you can complete shift change over. Afterwards everyone will check tools, equipment and vehicles. The rest of the day consists of training, cleaning and any other odd tasks that need to be accomplished that day. The video gaming and tv watching portion that everyone talks about does not happen until after normal duty hours. This is considered “down time”. Depending on your supervisor and department, as a new firefighter, you may be required to complete your 5-Level courses prior to getting to fully experience down time.

Other details

Weekends will be worked, especially on a 24/24 schedule. However, K-Day/Kelly-Days are given to make up for the lack of weekends. Every other week you will get one of your normal work days off. This will allow for a 3-Day “weekend”. These days are set by the Station Captain and Assistant Chief of your shift.

Culture

Fire protection is a completely enlisted/civilian field. The first officer is your chain of command is commonly the Squadron commander. Fire protection culture is very similar to a frat; a lot of jokes, pranks and brotherhood. Family style dinners are commonplace and it is completely normal to spend off duty time with coworkers you’ve just spent 24 hours working with.

Tech School

Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas; It is a physically and mentally demanding course. Previously, it had one of the higher wash-out rates in the Air Force. Due to standards changes that has lessened a bit, but many people still struggle. Goodfellow dorms are fairly new, and the base is small. Bottled/Filtered water is a necessity in the area due to drought and contaminants. The surrounding city is friendly and growing, but lacking many things that normal cities have. Overall, it is not a bad sacrifice for one of the more desired jobs in the Air Force.

Career Development Courses (CDCs)

Fire protection CDCs operate very differently than CDCs in other AFSCs. The courses for each skill level are split into different classes. The courses are usually done on CD-ROM along with hands-on OJT. Each course provides you with a different certification, and these certifications build upon one another as you progress. Many of the courses are taught by the Department of Defense Fire Academy and it is not uncommon to see E-2/3/4s headed back to Goodfellow for additional training.

A.S. Fire Science, CCAF

A.S. Instructor of Technology and Military Science, CCAF (Available as a Fire Protection Technical Training Instructor)

Advanced Training

Fire protection no longer has a 5/7 level school, as previously stated 5/7 Levels are earned through certifications completed at the home-station and through the Department of Defense Fire Academy.

Ability to do schoolwork

Completing schoolwork during shift is common. While working 24+hr shifts the end of the duty day for everyone else is normally downtime for fire personnel. You will still be on-duty and at the fire station but this time can be used for PT, CDCs, schoolwork and eventually, sleep.

Security Clearance

Most Fire Protection personnel are only required to have a Secret clearance. Anything further would be dependent on the base and job tasking.

Base Choices

The majority of CONUS and OCONUS bases are available for assignment.

Deployments

Deployment tempo is normal.

Civilian marketability

It is very likely to use the skills and knowledge you learned in the Air Force and apply it to a civilian job. Many firefighters end up leaving the Air Force to pursue a civilian career due to a desire for a higher work tempo. Civilian firefighter is not necessarily a high paying job, but the experience and certifications you have earned will greatly assist you in acquiring a position.
