    Not at all, in fact it actually is a very good thing. Not only does it help you, but it makes you look VERY good to your officers and other firefighters.

    Thanks for the quick responses. I am in New York. Looks like I will be doing FF I and II, EMT and CFR. And for the responses of learning the truck, that is a given and will happen at every point I have time.

    If I were you...

    I would get my basic certs down first (FF1/2, Hazmat, EMT) and then make sure you know your apparatus, whats carried on them and how to use them.

    This is where i would start. If the dept. is anything like the ones around here in ATL.. then the biggest thing is your EMS cert. Go ahead and get your EMT-I. Then You will look much better to the dept. FF1 and 2 will help but i'm sure you will still have to attend the departments rookie school if you have no experience. good luck with whatever you do! keep us posted.
