I may be interested in taking a security position up there and was wondering if they had to deal with alot of bs or if most of their job just consists of fire watch duties, basically sitting in a chair and watching for problems.

I have a wife and a kid is in our near future, I don't really want to take a job where my health is at risk all the time. Are the security guys really anal up there?

No health risks at all dude... just dealing with the odd drunk guy at camp etc and making sure people are staying safe. Nobody is really anal, everyone is just there to get a job done and hopes for a hassle-free shift so there's mutual respect for the most part. It definitely won't be a very mentally stimulating job though!
