It does help... makes me feel better. That's what I've been doing and it's good to know I'm on the right track. Just research research and more research. I just want to be able to ask good questions and it comes time to.
Thanks and good luck to you as well.
I would say education and research. I'm in the same boat as you man and that's where i've started. Considering going to get a fire science degree also to better my chances. Hope this helps and good luck!
