Thanks for the info. The rates i'm mainly interested in are BM,AMT,DC,GM,ME,MST,IS,HST. That being said i personally rather do something out and about. I can already be a administrative person stuck in an office all day. The closest CG unit to me would either be MSST Houston or Air Station Houston. Those are both roughly 115 miles from me. I've been to the ship channel numerous times.
The type of job i'm looking for would hopefully involve SAR,LE and environmental response. It's my understanding that a Air station won't have many reserve billets if at all. That leaves the MSST. I also have 3 other stations a little further down the road. MSU Texas City, CG Galveston, CG Freeport. As far as making the drive goes it won't be too much of a problem. If you live in Tx there is a good chance you have a commute.
As for Depot i do have hazmat certs as well as my normal firefighter certs. What type of careers are applicable to DC & MST rating? Also would being involved in law enforcement qualify? I'm not a certified peace officer but i do have 7 years of experience.
Lastly how likely would it be for me to get the age waiver? I know i'm currently a little over the weight requirements for my height. I would also need to work on passing/exceeding the PAT requirements. If it helps any i can pass any background check needed. Thanks in advance.
