            • Hello all, just kind of curious, I'm finishing up my Bachelors at UW-Madison and I was just curious when fire departments tend to ramp of their recruiting? is it more fall/spring or summer? Right now I don't have any certifications, I would just have my bachelors, would it be better for me to try and volunteer and get some credentials? or try and get in on an academy program and if that doesn't work then go the volunteer route. Feel free to put down your own personal testimonies. Just sort of curious how you all got into this career field.

                Volunteering would be great to get you experience and helps show that you have an interest in the job. Most volunteer and part time/combination departments will help you get your EMT and FF 1 certifications. For bigger cities (Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago etc) they will make you go thru their academy no matter what. Focus on getting your EMT license and go from there. And there really isn?t a time that depts will ramp up their recruitment, it depends on budgeting, retirements, and if they need people.

                • So yesterday they said they got 115 phq packets back and they'll take about half of that for the CPAT. Also the CAPT sounds like it's gonna be late January early February.

                      I just got a letter about EMT and it's gonna start around March 11th or 16th depending on if you go weekdays or weekends and that should run to the end of May than the academy will start July 29th. CPAT sounds like it's gonna be the end of February I heard they might do a class of 50 and maybe 2 classes as well
