Your not alone with the FD i've been here 5 years and lost money every year out of my check for insurance and this that and the other. 96 hour check is only 650 bucks. Im in school and working 3 jobs with two kids and wife. I bring home about 7 bucks an hour while at the Firehouse after benefits. It sucks because I like the Fire Department but you can't make a living doing it.
