  • Possible places to work?

    Hey guys. I am a highschool student who has been dead set on becoming a firefighter since I was 4 yrs old, anyways, I was wondering if you all could give me some suggestions of places I could work. I am looking for hopefully a full time, but if not that’s fine. Also, a fire dept that runs medicals (ours only runs medical calls if police are backed up) also am wondering about EMT certification and how the hiring process works. I’m going to be EMT certified hopefully soon (I’m taking classes through a pathways program in my highschool) thanks for your help. Stay safe.

    I would say step one is figuring out where you wanna live. Everywhere is so different in terms of hiring requirements you need to figure out where you want to live so you can research how best to get hired.

    You don’t want to spend years spinning your wheels applying everywhere but not really being a competitive applicant.

            Start with getting your EMT certification, because that is required everywhere you'll apply in the fire service. That'll also allow you to start working and gaining experience in the medical field. Start researching the departments you're interested in and their minimum requirements to apply (EMT, physical testing, written testing, FF1 academy, etc), but don't limit yourself to just those departments. Start preparing and tuning up for interviews, because these are really the golden ticket to standing out among everyone else with all of the basic qualifications. It never hurts to ask questions, but always try and do your research and do diligence first.

            Lastly, don't get discouraged by the process. If it's truly what you want to do, you'll make it happen. For some it can be a matter of a few months to get picked up. For other's it can take 10 years. I'm still somewhere between the two.

              While studying, I also thought about the work of the fireman. How cool it sounded to be a fireman. But after a while, that idea went away. Totally plunged into his studies, because of the temporary work of the waiter had problems. Tried to solve problems with his studies with the help of the site https://eduzaurus.com/free-essay-samples/life/ where he found the necessary material for writing essays. On this site constantly used free samples of an essay, especially on such a philosophical theme as life. As a result, after graduation, initially went to work in a specialty, and then reached a level in sports and became a coach.
