    I am a resident but no veteran status. My city also does not run ALS, so my only option is to smoke the civil service exam.
    If only it were that easy.

    What city are you a resident in?

If the city/town doesn’t run their own ALS, then being a veteran or a resident are your tickets. If they do run their own ALS, then being a paramedic is your ticket. Residency is only given if you’ve lived in the city/town for one year BEFORE the exam date.

    New Hampshire is tougher because unless you have your FFII, then no full-time department will even look at your application. I know some places will take you if you have your FFI and your medic, but it’s rare. Your best bet for NH is getting on a volunteer department for a few years and get your certs under your belt by having them sponsor you through an academy.

    Or pick a different state, that has more depts, that test more often, with less restrictions


    Get your paramedic and check weekly:

    Not anywhere near you.

    Good luck and sounds like you will make it!!

    From N H web site:::



    Full-time/career firefighters are those whose career is fire fighting. Only about 20% of NH fire departments are covered by full-time/career firefighters, which makes seeking a career in the fire service in NH a competitive process.

    MA Civil Service + NH Process to get certified?

    Hey all,

    I am currently 19 years old and pursuing my EMT-B certification as well as some community college courses. I currently hold MA residency but I am not a veteran nor am I interesting in serving right now. I have been studying the preparation guide for the Massachusetts civil service test. I plan on taking that this summer because it got pushed back, at this point I am grinding out practice questions and praying that I get a good score to get on to the reserve list. At my age, is it even possible to get hired as a civilian in either MA or NH at 19/20?

    I hope to apply to NH's recruit school which includes Firefighter I and II. Their admission process includes a modified applicant system that puts residents and affiliated/sponsored guys ahead of someone like me who is not a resident. If any NH guys could chime in and tell me if you guys had MA guys in your classes, that would be great! I am interested in working in either state but honestly leaning towards New Hampshire because of the higher quality of life.

    Thanks!
