    Well, apparently I just found out Metro does have an academy specifically for part-timers every year in August, but I missed the boat this year. Metro may not have volunteers. They call them part-time, but they only get paid per call they respond to from home.

    So anyway, looks like I'll be going with Karns Volunteer FD. Their training starts in September.

    It's a volunteer department and they require FFI before you can volunteer.

    All VFDs that I have been associatted with train thier members.

    On that note, I didn't know Rural/Metro had volunteers.

    Can someone tell me if it's the same thing as FF I and where can I get the training if a department won't offer it? By the way, it's Rural/Metro Fire in Knoxville, TN.
