IMO, that may be difficult. I am not saying that it can't happen, but, due to the fact that these islands are small and "cliquey", you may find some dissention. Anyone else?

I'm a firefighter here on St. Thomas and I can tell you it's going to be very hard. The first person that responded is correct in saying that the islands are small and it's a lot about "who you know". Even locals can have a hard time finding a "good job" without some type of pull. Politics or should I say "Politricks". Now, what I would suggest is looking into going into business for yourself whereby you can provide training to firefighters, if you can develop such contacts. I say this because the government here sends firefighters stateside for certain training that cannot be obtained locally. Something like that would be beneificial.
