      I agree with this cat !

      However , I am in the same boat as you , If you can afford it , I would go for your Paramedic....it takes a while.

      I have been going to school for about a year , working inbetween and I still have months to go before I get my Firefighter 1.

      As I troll the Firehouse jobs page daily , I see that the request for PARAMEDIC is in much higher demand then a Firefighter 1 academy Grad .!

      Good luck !

        I would attempt to do both, go to medic school and work as a seasonal for CDF. (Which by the way are taking applications at your district ranger stations) It all depends on your "time" management skills ; our department currently hires paramedics, but were getting a lot of "green" medics with little experience and letting them go.

        Good Luck
