Have you tried asking a local community Doc to volunteer the physicals?
the req.'s for a class 2 are pretty minimal...the only thing requiring
special equipment is the urine test...which comes in strips out of a jar
and a spygmometer(SP) for blood pressures. OR maybe they can get their
BP's done at the local fire station and the rest done by the volunteer
doc. The rest of the equipment most Dr's have in their bag at home. In
fact...I wonder if a nurse parent could do it....it only says
" Medical data required is an annual health history signed by
parents or guardian supported by a medical evaluation completed within
the past 36 months by a licensed health care practitioner."
hope this helps
