    I was a volunteer firefighter just outside DC (right on the border - our rescue squad responded to the Pentagon on 9/11). About 1/3 or so of our members were also paid firefighters in neighbouring districts.

    (This actually causes a certain amount of internal conflict among firefighters; the union isn't a big fan of volunteers, especially in suburban districts that could fund a paid department.)
