    Unless you live in a town that only wants local folks to be paid on call, your probably out of luck. I had a similar problem doing the same thing.The hardest thing is trying to find a town to sponsor you for FFII. Thats not easy to find. Knowing some members of the fire dept to could help your cause as well.

    If you list the area it might be easier to list some possible departments.

    For the majority of departments in the Chicago area I've found; no medic & no FF2 = no job. In my area and EMS system, Medic and FF2 requires being employed by a department beforehand. A nice vicious cycle of bull****.
    It makes me sooo angry how that works. really contemplating leaving after medic school next year, but i just love chicago so much lol.
