I am a full-time firefighter with the Edmonton fire department and would like to do a work exchange to Ireland. I just turned 40, I have a wife and two kids aged 6 & 4 and it's coming up to 11 years that I have been with the department. I would also like to exchange homes for the duration of the exchange. I live in a small town 10 min outside of Edmonton called Beaumont.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is a City with a population of about 1 million people. It is located about 4 hour drive from Jasper National Park & Banff National Park. The parks which are located in the Rocky Mountains are great destinations for skiing, hiking, wildlife and any outdoor activity you could imagine. To the south of Edmonton about 6 hour drive is the United States Boarder. West of Edmonton about 12 hour drive is the Pacific Coast and the City of Vancouver. Our department has 27 working stations with another 3 opening up over the next 3 years. The Edmonton Fire Department has approximately 1200 full-time members.
If there is anyone interested or has questions please don't hesitate to contact me. I would also appreciate it if you could pass my information on to anyone who you think might be interested in doing a work exchange.
