It goes without saying that the Air Force operates in an environment unlike any other, and therefore we need Fire Protection specialists unlike any others. In this field, you'll be trained to deal with everything from brush fires to burning rocket fuel and hazardous material fires. You'll also be stationed on an Air Force base using the latest equipment and will occasionally help out local civilian fire departments when needed. Fire Protection is intense but very rewarding as you'll not only be putting out fires, but you'll also be saving lives.
