I hate to have to disagree with the lady who is usually pretty doggone accurate. but I was a volly firefighter at the same time that I was a sorporal with the Sheriff's Dept. as a deputy, I had received some training, seeing as we were in a rural area. I got paid for being a deputy, the firefighting was volunteer. I was not expected to respond to fire call when I was on duty, but I did respond when I was off duty. Again, we were tripl;e-trained as LEO/FF/EMT, and our back up was often an hour out.
