fire fighters get more respect. and get to drive around in a fire truck all day. Fire Trucks RULE!!!

I don't, but I highly recommend growing a moustache. Police officers and firefighters are two of the jobs where a moustache is almost manditory.

if you want more respect, go with firefighter. people don't like cops. or security guards

Yeah, cops get a lot of crap all the time, plus they work a lot more. I'd say firefighter.

If you want to stick with it then be a Police Officer.

If it is only temporary be a Fire Fighter.

I am swaying more to applying to be a firefighter, when I was young, I loved everything to do with firefighters.

Personally I'd pick being a cop for two reasons 1) You get a gun, mace, a billy club. and handcuffs. 2) Firefighters do work way more than cops, because they pretty much have to ready 24/7.

Firefighters, because my dad's one

Firefighter, because this one guy that went to school with the girlfriend of a guy who used to live a few miles away from me is thinking about becoming one

I want to go into police officer training when I'm 18, so good luck to you if you're doing it too.

No, but I have an opinion..... if that counts?

I would say it would depend on a few things.

Law enforcement is one of those things that I've always thought was a straight down the line follow everything to the book things. No buying knocked off DVDs, copied albums and the occasional joint type thing. not that I condone any of the above, but they are kind of taken as things that most people do these days, there's supposed to be any leeway with any of the above. while I've been brought up with a strong moral upbringing and know whats right and wrong there's a little grey area where the voice in my head would say well its not that major. Correct me if I'm wrong but even the most minor things are suppose to be dealt with in the up most seriousness. I'm an honest person but, I'd tend to let the minor things go and I know that your not supposed to do that at all........so basicly I'd be fired with in a week lol

As for the fire service

Most kids want to join the fire brigade when there about 6 or 7. its one of those jobs where you have peoples lifes in your hands. can you take that responsibility? can you work under the pressure of having a building full of people that could collapse at any moment? whats your levels of fear? now I know that most people would be s**ting themselves at the prospect of going in to a burning building. there's the side of me that would be the have a go hero loaded on adrenalin, but I sure as hell know that I couldn't do anything along those lines on a daily basis.

Both of those jobs contain far to much responsibility for me to handle + nether would have me on the grounds of H&S, but if I was in you situation I would probably be inclined to join the fire service as it seems more rewarding.

Best of luck with whatever you decide to do

I'v already decided that I'm not gonna go to uni.

I think I'm gonna apply to join the fire service when I turn 18, and just work the next couple of months to earn some money, to pay for my car and other things.

i'd go firefighter. it's a lot less dangerous...the pay is nowhere near as good, but you'd expect that.
