I hate the schedule!  He also works in the ER and trains special military operation medics.  In 2009 he worked every holiday expect Halloween.  Yep mine's hot in his uniform too!

I would definitely say his schedule is the most difficult thing to deal with, but it is a lot better than when he was in paramedic school and working and i was in school and working all at the same time. This year he works every holiday and both our birthdays. Pretty crappy for our first married year together, but he's worth every minute of it!

Me & the FI both work the same place different schedules... & we will actaully work for the people with kids on the holidays.. I hope me giving up ALL my holidays pays off when i decide to have kids. Plus i can't complain about double or triple holiday pay... I guess missing holidays grows on you. You'll get use to it ladies.


I think its funny that 3 out of 4 of our FI's names are Chris tho :)

I wouldn't care so much about the holidays if we didn't have kids.  But I wonder how much longer I can keep up Santa makes a special trip for us because daddy is a hero and has to work.

DH: Chris (another one...lol)


Station: Arvada, CO FD


Love/Hate about "the job": Umm...right now it's the time he doesn't have at home with me...selfish I know. He's currently going through academy for Arvada on the weekends...and he has over night shifts at Lafayette twice a week so I feel like he's never really at home. He's also a volunteer on both departments working towards a paid position so he's trying to spend as much extra time as he can "getting his face" out there. We're hoping he gets hired on sometime before the end of this year or early next. Fingers crossed

Station: Iberia Parish Fire District #1


Love/Hate about the job: Love: That he is getting do what he has always wanted to do. And cause he is HOT in uniform! Hate: Getting his shift switched around every couple of months really sucks because just when you get excited about him being around for a holiday it changes. And the volunteer dept he is in has a meeting every week and it usually falls on the day that he is coming off his 24 :( so I don't normally get to see him until about 9:30-10:00 the first night he is home!

Station: Essex FD


Love/Hate about "the job": He is a volunteer so he leaves home for calls at all hours 365 days a year 24/7...that can get old.  I can't count how many dinners have gone cold because he's left for fire calls.  I love how happy firefighting makes him though!

Station: Los Angeles City Fire Dept.


Love/Hate about "the job": Honestly, there isn't anything I truly "hate". Right now I don't mind him being gone for 24 hrs. It allows for me to have "me time" && hang out with my girls without feeling guilty for leaving him at home. I'm sure this will change once we have a kid && I'm at home alone with the child. I love that my "family" continues to grow each time someone new enters his station. The firefighter family is amazing in itself [most of the time]. He was at the same station for 4 years, so I've grown very close with the wives/GFs/fiances of his co-workers. Now he is moving to a new station && I'm going to be "the new girl" && maybe that is the thing I don't particularly like. LA City is a VERY tight-knit group && sometimes the girls aren't too welcoming to a new girl to their "click".

Love/Hate about "the job" - we're both volunteers (he's fire and EMS; I'm EMS) so we miss a lot of events.  I love the adrenaline rush we get when we go, and I love seeing him in uniform - yummy!!!  I hate missing special events and never knowing when the call will come in.

Our Station: Oliver-Paipoonge Fire and First Response Department, Rosslyn Hall

We are both volunteers, yet he also works for the government dispatching fire and ems. I hate the drama that goes around the volunteering as well, but there is nothing like the thrill of waking up at two a.m., grabbing our jumpsuits and going. My number one fear is one day I will hear on the radio 'Mayday Mayday, we have a firefighter down'...  But I believe that is all of our fears

Station: Carrollton FD (volunteer only), he is Lt


Love/Hate: the 24/7 on call and it NEVER FAILS when a group of us firemen and wives get together they get called out and leave us women to watch all the kids, finish dinner or whatever we were doing. But I love that it makes him happy and most definitely the uniform. He even mentioned doing an e-pic in his bunker pants ;) love it

Love/Hate about "the job": We are both firefighter and I love the fact that we spend so much time on scene and working together. The rush is crazy. Plus he is hotter than the sun in his gear!! But, the thing I hate is when I get scared that something will help to him and I will be there to see it.

Biggest love/hate about "the job": Well...he's a volunteer firefighter currently. So I'd say the leaving for calls at all hours of the day/night. We both work full time EMS. I hate he's on 24/48s because I work 12s. I love how happy it makes him.
