Right now, I am writing the Roadmap to Firefighter book. My research has revealed a whole category of firefighter called an aerial firefighter. This is a firefighter who fights fires from the air.
One of the greatest things about writing the $uccess Without College Roadmap series is all the interesting things I learn.
Aerial firefighting means that aircraft is used to fight wildfires, which can be helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. Commonly called an air tanker or waterbomber, the fixed-wing plane has a water tank that is filled on the ground.
Flying planes get their water to fight fires from skimming water from lakes, reservoirs or large rivers.
Water is not the only substance used in aerial firefighting. Ammonium sulfate with attapulgite clay thickener or diammonium phosphate with a guar gum derivative thickener is also used. Wow!
Success without college is available to anyone who is willing to work hard and continue to learn. The roadmap to success includes many professions that do not require a college degree first. Often training will provide college credits – for free. Becoming a master plumber will give you all but a few classes towards an associates degree.
The salary for a firefighter is good, but the money is not a reason to choose this profession. Firefighters choose to risk their lives and safety for others.
You can be one of the success stories without a college degree. All it takes is hard work and willingness to learn. Many students can’t afford college, and think higher education is a scam. There is a decline of college enrollment. With all this change, is a college degree really necessary? It is up to you. Not if you want to be a software developer. But it is if you want to become a doctor or professor.
Other books about success without college focus on calming anxious parents, and not on solutions. Buy $uccess Without College Roadmap to Plumber or Roadmap to Software Developer by Christine Axsmith for solid advice on launching your successful career path.
