Don't believe the hype. You can make a decent living here, and get 100% paid for health benefits. The pros end there. No, FDNY is NOT the best trained. Not by a long shot. It's actually pretty pathetic how low the standards are here. Administration? Couldn't care less. Numbers numbers numbers. That's it.
