Dear Firecareers.com,

My name is Ronnie King and I want to start off by saying that your web site is the best place for anyone looking for a career in the Fire Service. I was recently employed with a Fire Department in the state of Florida for 5 1/2 years.

Matthew Powers


To all of the folks at PFC:

I’m not sure if all of the past, present, and future PFC subscribers have a realistic grasp on all of the hard work that you do on behalf of your subscribers. For a monthly cost roughly equivalent to 2 visits to Starbucks, you all do the footwork and information gathering previously done by overworked firefighter hopefuls.

I know that I couldn’t have gotten where I am today without your help. I have just … Read the rest

Dear PFC,

I hope my testimonial will boost those who have sagging hopes for attaining this career. I rode the testing “circuit” for more than six years. I was working on my college education, working a part-time position as a Reserve Firefighter and getting all the certs that I could. I got good scores on my exams and orals but for some reason I just could not get a job offer. I continued to practice my oral board skills and … Read the rest
