Quoted from MrBally:

Law enforcement and Fire fighter pensions are pretty good. Plus, many let you retire at 50, 48 and some 45.

28 years in the fire service...I am eligible to retire next month at 48. Retiring at this age sounds great until you tally up the physical injuries accumulated throughout a career. Two fractured cervical vertebrae, 3 ruptured lumbar discs, and one heart attack from chemical exposure...quality of life sure takes a hit.

The pension system is no longer offering health insurance beginning in 2019, need to work through a third party for coverage. With a wife and two kids in college, it makes pulling the trigger a hard decision.
